Angel Hair with Garlic Powder and Parmesan Cheese

"Back with another batch of #pantrypasta. All you need for this one is olive oil or butter, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese. Soooo amazing and reminds me of my childhood when I got off the bus from grade school and decided making buttered noodles was more important than starting my homework."
