Greek Jewish


Angel Hair with Sauce


Fides are a Greek version of angel hair pasta made with durum wheat. This is a simple recipe made by Jewish grandmothers in Athens. It was quite good and simple to make but the original recipe had too much salt. I would recommend that you don't add any, specially if you are using chicken broth that already has salt in it. Otherwise taste and add salt if necessary.

This dish can also be made with vegetable broth, if you keep kosher you can then eat it with Parmesan cheese.



  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 8 oz Anger Hair pasta
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp Italian parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • a dash of black pepper


Heat the oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. Add the pasta and cook until golden. Set aside.

Meanwhile place the broth, tomato juice, parsley, oregano and pepper in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add the pasta and a tablespoon of oil and stir well, separating the noodles. Cook over medium-low heat until all the liquid is gone, about 15 minutes.
