This was a favorite growing up. Easy and fast to make. I like this best over Angel Hair pasta. This is not a heavy sauce and is on the healthier side. The cornstarch helps to thicken and keep the sauce on the noodles.

    A while back, I printed this out so that I could make it and then had an accident so my wonderful Husband offered to make it. It was FABULOUS! He knows I love garlic so he added quite a bit more than the recipe called for. He has made it again for me and company as well and I suggested he use a little more corn starch than the recipe called for to allow for the sauce to stick to the pasta a bit better and it was perfect. Traditionally this is served over linguine but we LOVE it with angel hair!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
