1 tsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1/2c. dry white wine
1/4c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1c. chopped tomato (1 medium tomato)
4oz. dried spinach angel hair pasta
4oz. dried semolina angel hair pasta
1/4c. chopped fresh basil
2T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat and maintain at a boil.
Put the olive oil and garlic in a saute pan and cook over medium heat just until the garlic begins to brown. Remove the saute pan from the heat and pour in the wine. Return the pan to the heat. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, until the wine has been reduced by half. Stir in the lemon juice and tomato. Remove the pan from heat.
Place the pasta in the boiling water and cook to desired firmness, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain the pasta and put it into a warm serving bowl. Add the basil, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper, along with the tomato mixture. Toss and serve immediately.
