Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Dry-pack sun-dried tomatoes may also be used in this recipe.
  • tip 2
    Any long pasta shape, such as linguine or spaghetti, can be substituted for the angel hair.
  • tip 3
    If you like fresh basil and have it on hand, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of chopped basil at the end of cooking time. For even more Mediterranean flavor, top with 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 oz) just before serving.
