Expert Tips

* Larger sea scallops can be substituted for bay scallops; cut in half before cooking. ** One 9-oz. pkg. frozen asparagus cuts can be substituted; add at end of recipe with onions. Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Angel hair pasta (in Italian, capelli d'angeli) is a much thinner version of spaghetti. It cooks quickly, making it ideal for last-minutes suppers. Don't overboil it, though, or like all pastas it will be mushy.
