2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts OR 8 oz tuna steaks
½ box thin spaghetti
2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
4 green onions, sliced thin and separated
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Tbsp Italian herb mix
1 tsp red pepper flakes
½ tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp Chicken bouillon paste
3 small zucchini, halved and sliced
1 cup ricotta cheese
Cook the spaghetti and drain, reserving 1 ½ cup of the water.
Cook the meat on medium-high heat with a little salt and pepper. Set aside to rest.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and cook the jalapeños on medium-high heat until slightly charred.
Reduce heat to medium and add a tablespoon of olive oil and the garlic and onion whites. Cook until fragrant.
Add zucchini, tomatoes, herbs, red pepper flakes, and bouillon together with ½ cup of the reserved pasta water. Cook until zucchini is just al dente, stirring often.
Add the drained spaghetti, black pepper, cheese, and enough pasta water to make a sauce to cover the spaghetti evenly.
Thinly slice the meat on top of each serving. Garnish with parmesan, onion greens, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
