Muir Glen® is committed to providing organic tomatoes picked at the peak of the season. It is the next best thing to fresh tomatoes and available to use year-round. Plus, with Muir Glen® Organic, you can prepare a meal in under 30 minutes! 

I used Muir Glen® Organic Red and Yellow Diced Tomatoes to create a Mexican-inspired pasta with yellow pepper, cilantro and jalapeno. When jalapenos are seeded, they add a little spice but are not too hot. 

This sauce comes together while the pasta is cooking.
