Heavenly Carbs

Tomorrow is race day so it's time to stock up on carbohydrate-rich foods. This is a delicious Angel Hair Pasta dish I grew up with that is very simple to make. There are many variations but this is the simple meatless version. One serving has 41g of carbs and 9g protein. Enjoy!

Fideo (Mexican Spaghetti)

3 tbs oil
1-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, minced
3/4 t. cumin seed, coarsely ground
1 8oz package capellini pasta coils (Angel Hair Pasta aka Fideo)
1 c canned tomato sauce
3 c water
salt & pepper

Sauté onion, garlic and cumin in oil. Break up the fideo and add into the mix, sizzle `til golden. Warning: It's going to smell heavenly. Add tomato sauce, water and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. I'm going to spice it up with cayenne and add a little fresh cilantro. Is great by itself, but makes a great side dish or with more broth as a soup.
