Description

Our angel hair nests from Northern Italy are made with only the finest durum wheat and generations of pasta-making experience. Capellini, also known as "angel hair," is a thin long-cut pasta perfect for light and delicate sauces.

  • Artisan crafted pasta from Northern Italy.
  • Made with the finest hard durum wheat and slow-dried at low temperatures for signature flavor and al dente bite.
  • Bundled in convenient portion-sized nests.
  • All natural, egg free, kosher, non-gmo, vegan, vegetarian.

Usage Tips

Angel Hair Pasta pairs well with: tomato basil, quick pomodoro sauces, anchovies, light seafood sauces, pesto and garlic and oil sauces.

We love angel hair all year long, but summer recipes are our favorite because it pairs well with no-cook tomato sauces.

Kitchen Tips

Be sure to reserve pasta water because Capellini can dry out quicker than other pasta shapes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are angel hair nests used for? Angel hair nests are best used for delicate sauces such as light tomato or cream sauces. It's often served in simple preparations, and can be substituted for spaghetti in some dishes.

Do angel hair nests stay together? No, once the nest is placed in hot boiling water, it will loosen and become individual thin long strands of pasta.

How long do you boil angel hair nests? Approximately 6 minutes, but continually check for al dente texture.

How do you keep angel hair nests from sticking? Make sure to use a large pot with lots of water to allow the pasta to move freely. Stir it during cooking and don’t overcook it. Avoid adding oil to your pasta water as it will not allow your sauce to stick to the pasta.
