Throw an Italian 4th of July!

You gotta have pasta at an Italian 4th of July, right? Here, a simple cherry tomato sauce cooked with chiles and vodka coats delicate pasta. Creamy and spicy at the same time. We like it. Angel hair pasta is thinner than regular ol' spaghetti, so it feels finer, because, well, technically it is.
