Chipotle Shrimp Sauce with Angel Hair Pasta
Shrimp and pasta are weeknight dinner wonders — so why not combine them into one quick and easy, secretly-healthy pasta recipe? Here, a traditional tomato sauce is spiced up with chipotle peppers. Crumbled Cotija cheese in place of Parmesan gives this a Mexican flair. Cotija is an aged Mexican cheese that’s similar to Parmesan in texture. It’s salty, somewhat dry, and crumbly, perfect for serving with pasta dishes.
Purée tomatoes and chipotles in a food processor, then add to skillet; bring sauce to a simmer and cook 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.
