Sour Cream Pasta with Chives has a creamy sour cream pasta sauce and angel hair pasta completely reminiscent of boxed Pasta Roni, but with real ingredients and ready just as quickly. This pasta roni recipe is kid-friendly and family-approved for easy weeknight cooking.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the sour cream, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and chives.
Add the angel hair pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, according to package directions, only to al dente (this will only be 2 minutes - don't go further or the pasta will come out gummy). Drain quickly, reserving ½ cup pasta water, and add the pasta to the sour cream and chive sauce. Taste for seasoning.
Serve immediately because this will thicken quite a bit when it cools. If pasta thickens too much, add some of the reserved pasta water to loosen it back up.
I find that once cooked, this recipe needs another pinch of salt, but not enough for me to up the amount from ¼ to ½ tsp in the instruction. Simply taste for seasoning and adjust for your palate.
