Pasta with Breadcrumbs

This is a very simple and fast pasta dish. I make my own breadcrumbs out of stale baguettes, then put the crumbs in jars and freeze.

1/2 lb. angel hair pasta
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c. plain breadcrumbs or more to taste
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
1/4-1/2 c. pasta water

Bring a 6-quart pot full of water to the boil. Add some salt. Add angel hair and cook 5 minutes or until al dente. While the pasta cooks, warm the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes until soft and fragrant. As garlic begins to turn color stir in bread crumbs and some salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. of the parsley. Add cooked pasta and enough pasta water to keep it moist. Cook 1 minute. Pour into serving bowl. Top with remaining parsley. Serves 4.
