This is a nice, light summer dish. It's easy to prepare too.

- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup chopped tomato
- 8 ounces angel hair pasta
- 1⁄4 cup fresh basil, chopped
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- fresh ground black pepper
- Put the olive oil and garlic in a saute pan and cook over medium heat till the garlic begins to brown.
- Add the broth and cook till it's reduced in half.
- Stir in lemon juice, tomato and basil.
- Cook angel hair pasta till done.
- Drain, and add to the tomato mixture.
- Top with cheese and pepper.
It was pretty good sauce. I would have preferred more thickness, but it had good flavor. Also, I would prefer for the necessary amount of lemon juice to be listed. I used rotel crushed tomatoes instead of chopping some myself and used the 4 minute spicy garlic shrimp recipe from recipezaar for something to go with it. They're great compliments with a lot of the same ingredients. I'd recommend. Thanks for the recipe!
I thought this was great dish. I changed some things only because of personal preference but the base is delicious as written. I added more extra-virgin olive oil, more garlic, I used 1/2 cup of fresh Basil and fresh grated Parmesian and Romano cheese. I cooked my Angel Hair just until lightly tender to the tooth. I'm going to try it a couple more time this summer, once using sun-dried tomatoes finely chopped, and another time I'm going to try just basil, fresh lemon zest & juice, and olive oil with the cheeses. Thanks for a great base meal.
