We had this for dinner tonight and I enjoyed it very much. I made it for two using spaghetti rigate, one large zucchini, one small vine-ripened tomato and halving everything else except the chilli flakes. There wasn't enough sauce to coat the pasta, so I added extra ricotta. Next time I'll add an extra tomato along with some of the pasta water, as my SO found the sauce to be too dry. I didn't mind this as the flavour was good and fresh. I also added salt & cracked pepper and topped the finished meal with a good freshly grated parmesan, which added considerably to the flavour. Lemon juice might also be a nice addition. Will make again.
