Homemade Pasta Roni


Call it a childhood craving, dorm room gourmet, or simply a grocery store pantry staple, but homemade angel hair pasta with herbs is just as tasty and fast to make! There's no denying the simplicity.

Pasta Roni
Prep Time:

Cook Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
15 mins


  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 3 ounces angel hair pasta

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • ¾ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley, or to taste


  1. Bring chicken broth in a saucepan to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook angel hair pasta in the boiling broth, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes.

  2. Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of chicken broth.

  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in Italian seasoning, reserved 1/4 cup chicken broth, and whipping cream. Add Parmesan cheese and stir until melted.

  4. Stir in angel hair pasta; toss to coat. Garnish with freshly minced parsley.

Cook's Notes:

I use a microplane grater to finely shred the Parmesan cheese.

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese will be about 24 grams of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
