Jar marinara sauce keeps this simple Fettuccine With Spicy Zucchini-Tomato Sauce quick--it's done in 20 minutes. Crushed red pepper provides the spice.

How to Make It

Step 1

 Cook pasta according to package directions in salted water; reserve 1/4 cup pasta water. Drain pasta and return to pot.

Step 2

 While pasta cooks, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini; cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and crisp-tender (5-8 minutes). Add crushed red pepper, marinara, and reserved pasta water; simmer, partially covered, until pasta sauce is thick (about 5 minutes). Toss pasta with sauce and divide among 4 bowls.

Well I wish I could read properly when I used this recipe because I thought it said 12 tsp of crushed red pepper, not 1/2! I put 3 tsp in and decided it would hell to put anymore....It did come out very good, just very spicy, which would have been much better if I read the instructions correctly...very simple and tasty.
