Bill’s first choice of pasta is angel hair, and he likes shrimp mingling with tomatoes, so this dish is indeed a favorite here!
By the way, the Italian name of the pasta is Capelli d'angelo, as great a name as “angel hair.” It’s “nearly invisible spaghetti” that goes well with this sauce. And, I really like the sauce in this dish, as it is not so “liquefied” ~ it has substance, thanks to the cornstarch blending the ingredients well.
Sometimes, I substitute ½ cup white wine for the water. The white wine for drinking, not cooking: it’s salty and contains additives. And, since wine is slightly acidic, I then add a touch of brown sugar to the sauce.
This is a quick tasty dish for dinner ~ it makes Bill happy and I bet it will please your family also. I must say, he has the great quality of always being complimentary: after all these years of being married, he still tells me after about every dinner, “very good meal, dear!”
