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.
