Zippy Spinach Fettuccine

SERVES
6
COOK TIME
50 Min

Okay, so salsa isn't Italian. It just thinks it is when it becomes part of this classic baked fettuccine dish.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound spinach fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium-sized yellow squash, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 (28-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup salsa (see Note)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat s oven to 350 degrees F. Cook fettuccine according to package directions and drain.
     
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pot over medium-low heat; add squash and bell pepper and saute 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender, stirring constantly. Stir in spaghetti sauce and salsa, then add fettuccine; mix well.
     
  3. Place in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted.
     

Notes

Spicy or not spicy - it all depends on the "temperature" of the salsa you use. Just to keep it safe, we usually use a medium salsa.
