Looking for Angel Hair Pasta Recipes

Angel Hair Pasta recipes are my specialty as I am an angel hair fan.  One of my daughter’s college friends told me, “When my roommate came home with a bag full of field peas from her sister’s house I knew I could find a recipe to use them.  All I had to do is look in one of Holly Clegg’s cookbooks. Of course, she was eating healthy! I am so glad she knew where to find recipes for healthy cooking.  My recipes usually have ingredients you have in your pantry.  I guess that even means college students.
