It only happens once every couple years or so, but sometimes
I’ll think of the name of a recipe before I actually have the recipe. This
summery, hot wheels pasta is one such dish. Not sure how “hot wheels” popped
into my brain, but pop it did, and the next thing I knew I was at the market
buying a box of rotelle.
Just as easy, thanks to an assortment of hot and sweet pepper rings. I used about
two-thirds hot peppers to one-third sweet, but you’ll obviously adjust to your
personal tolerance. The zucchini provided a nice balance, although this is the
kind of pasta that will accept any and all other summer veggies.
Besides what to add, you also have a lot of flexibility when
it comes to the final taste and texture. I tend to like my peppers and squash
just barely tender for this, but if you cook the sauce a few extra minutes
before adding the pasta, you will get a softer, sweeter sauce. My version was a
little more bracing, with some bite left to it.
have what would basically be a hot pasta and vegetable salad. Regardless, no
matter what you add, or how long you cook it, I hope you’ll be driven to try
this great recipe soon. Enjoy!
