The Comfort of Angels Pasta Dish
* 1 stick (8 T.) butter or margarine
* 8 oz. angel hair pasta
* 3 c. hot chicken broth
* 1 t. (or to taste) freshly ground pepper
* Juice of 3-4 lemons
Melt stick of butter in a 2-1/2 qt. (or larger pan on stove top). Break up the pasta and stir in into the melted butter. Add chicken stock and pepper.

Cover and let simmer on low for 10 minutes until the liquids are nearly gone.
Finally, add lemon juice. Viola – a comfort food classic. You can add other ingredients ate the end, such as vegies, or herbs if you choose.
There is something so basic, delicious and melt-in-your mouth comforting about this simple recipe.
I may substitute rotini or other pasta and use this one pot method especially for two people.

Deborah Circle meets the first Wednesday of the month except July and August in The Landing at 10:00 AM.  The group discusses the articles and Bible Study available in the monthly WELCA Gather magazine.

Hannah Circle: Hannah was the mother of Samuel. The Hebrew word "Hannah" has many meanings and interpretations, including "beauty" and "passion."  The circle meets the third Monday at 6:30 PM in the Fireside Room.  The members discuss various topics such as women in the Bible and spiritual disciplines and issues.

Rebecca Circle: Rebecca was known for her beauty. She drew water for Abraham’s servant so he considered it a sign that she should become Jacob’s wife. Her betrothal and marriage is recorded in Genesis 24. Rebecca Circle meets in The Landing, at the church, on the third Wednesday of the month at 10:00 AM. Members discuss spiritual topics and Bible Study provided in the WELCA Gather Magazine.
