Angel Hair Pasta Recipe

This savory shrimp pasta dish merges delicate strands of ProteinPLUS® Angel Hair pasta with lemony shrimp and crunchy asparagus to delight your senses. By using ProteinPLUS®, Barilla's multigrain pasta made with simple ingredients like flaxseed, barley, and oats, plus protein-rich chickpeas, lentils, and egg whites, you've given yourself a good source of lean protein at the same time. Red pepper and red pepper flakes give a little kick to an already-flavorful recipe.
