Quick Angel Hair Pasta with tomatoes and basil

Looking for something quick, easy, and healthy? By simply changing the chicken stock to vegetable stock, you can have a tasty vegetarian meal, well, except for the cheese.

Tomatoes are high in lycopene, which I discuss here and here . Of course, there are many more places on the Internet where you can find information on lycopene.
