This pasta is at once sweet and spicy, getting it’s hit from some jalapenos and red pepper flakes (the latter of which were not in the original recipe but I thought it rather prudent to add them in) and it’s sweetness from the corn and zucchini. It’s a meal so simple and fresh flavored that you’ll swear you’re eating summer.
