Sue Kreitzman’s Lemon Butter Angel Hair Pasta

Course Main Dish
Cuisine Italian


  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 3 cups hot chicken stock
  • 1 pinch Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 splash Lemon juice to taste


  • Melt the butter in a small pot. Break up the pasta into more bite-sized lengths, about 1 to 2 inches each. Toss the pasta in the butter until it is well-coated.
  • Pour in the hot stock and grind in the pepper. Cover and cook over very low heat for 10 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Squeeze in the lemon juice (Sue Kreitzman used the juice of 1 small lemon). Taste and, if your stock wasn’t very salty and you’d like more, add a little salt to taste.
  • Top with freshly grated parmesan.
  • Serve immediately with a light salad or steamed greens.
