Loved this recipe! I actually used angel hair pasta 'cause it's my favourite & what I had in the house & it worked great. This exact amount of ingredients makes this recipe perfect. I was worried that the sugar would make the noodles taste sweet but it didn't. This is a great side dish. I just added a sprinkling of freshly cracked black pepper on my plate.
