The origins of Angel Hair Nests, with their evocative name (Angel Hair) and light consistency, are contested between the area around Genoa, Naples and the Ciociaria (central Italy). It is one of the thinnest types of long pasta wound into a nest shape. Even the name Angel Hair is reminiscent of the fine consistency of this type of pasta which is ideal for infants from 9 months old onwards to help them get used to eating food for grown-ups. Angel Hair are a type of pasta which is ideal with broth into which it is broken. Angel Hair can also be used for pasta dishes served with white sauces, eggs, uncooked butter and cheese.
