13 Aug Jonathan Cartu Announces: Chefs share best and worst pasta dishes to order at restaur…
Angel hair pasta is prone to being mushy.
Angel hair pasta, also called capellini, is an extremely thin type of pasta that measures less than a millimeter in diameter.
Unfortunately, Dall’Erta explained, angel hair’s delicate shape means this pasta is often poorly prepared.
“Angel hair pasta is almost always over-cooked due to its thin consistency. I think it should disappear from menus forever,” said Dall’Erta.
To reduce your chances of being served a plate of mush, you can try asking the kitchen to swap the angel hair pasta in a dish with a thicker variety of pasta, such as linguine or thin spaghetti.
