    Based on the others' comments, I upped the amount of seasonings - equal amounts cumin and chili powder, and about 1 tsp mix of parsley, basil and oregano. Once both the pasta and sauce were done, I mixed in the same pot and cooked for an additional 5 minutes to meld the flavors and infuse the pasta with the sauce. I think without this step the pasta would be bland, especially w/o the extra seasoning. I used shredded Monterrey jack which melted beautifully and became an element of the sauce.

    I just finished preparing this recipe and am eating while I type this. It's really a nice quick tasty recipe. It's not a real "chili" tasting sauce, it's more like a hint of chili but I really enjoyed it. I didn't have zucchini on hand so I used frozen green beans. As for the amounts of salt and pepper I used a teaspoon of each using kosher coarse salt.

    Seems like you have a new format, have to watch a camera commercial before your video and when I switch to the recipe there is no place that tells where to print. What's up?

    Such a bland and boring recipe. I was disappointed. I had to add more cumin, add some chili powder, Italian seasoning, and a little sugar to give it some flavor.

    I think "juice" means that you don't drain canned diced tomatoes and use the whole can. I am plannning making this tonight. So I'll see.

    We really enjoyed this recipe! I used the whole pound of pasta and 2# of ground beef and have lots of leftovers, I like that the sauce and pasta stay separate. I didn't use cumin either, I used a southwest seasoning and it turned out great. It didn't have that "heavy" feel that a lot of pasta dishes have. Will make again for sure!

    Quick and easy to make- fresh and light tasting even with the pasta. My kids gobbled it up- even the zucchini. Great for leftovers too. We're not a fan of cumin so we left that out and added dried herbs instead. Next time I will use fired roasted diced tomatoes for a kick.
