This is simple, warm, comforting, tasty. Great as one of those "We're not that hungry but we do want something and we don't want to go to a lot of trouble" dinners (aka "That was a wild party and we drank a titch too much and they didn't have nearly enough food and it's late and we're starving"). Everything's usually on hand here except the chives, which aren't essential anyway.

I don't know where I got the recipe.

Angel Hair Pasta in Lemon Butter Sauce
Serves 2

1/4 cup butter
4 oz. angel hair pasta
2 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp snipped chives
Grated Parmesan

Crack up pasta into roughly 2-inch pieces. Melt butter in a large saucepan until it's frothy, then toss pasta into butter, thoroughly coating. Stir in the stock. Cover and cook on medium-low for 15 to 30 minutes, until almost all the stock is absorbed and pasta is cooked. (Don't let it get too dry.)

Stir in lemon juice, zest, chives and pepper. Serve topped with Parmesan.
