Recipes From Our Readers: Creamy, Spicy Spaghetti
Jacek Chabraszewski/

In our winter magazine, we published the results of a survey about how our subscribers dealt with the trials of the last year. Many of you cooked and baked to cope and to spend time with your family and friends.

We asked for recipes that you enjoyed, and you were very generous in sharing them. We had space for only a few in print, but we will share more here on the blog each Friday.

Creamy, Spicy Spaghetti    

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
Olive oil
Shredded parmesan
Balsamic vinegar

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.
