A quick pasta to make.

Top Review by Malriah

I made this for dinner last night. It was very easy to put together and pretty tasty. I did change it a bit but not toooo much. We really like spicy so I minced a jalapeno and added it with the corn and tomatoes. I also used slightly more cheese and instead of plain monterey jack, I used pepper jack. (My lips started getting that tingly burn from the spice but it was delicious!) I couldn't find the wagon wheel pasta so I used cavatappi which is a pretty thick curly pasta. I really enjoyed my dinner and I will make this many times. Thanks for posting.
