A colorful combination of zucchini and zippy canned tomatoes is delicious over quick-cooking angel hair pasta. We like the extra zest from crushed red pepper flakes. —Kathleen Timberlake, Dearborn Heights, Michigan

My entire family loves this pasta! Even the kids. I add smoked sausage to it and I use the celantro and lime Mexican tomatoes and squeeze fresh line juice over the dish when plated. Amazing!!!
