Italian noodles go to Mexico when you add spicy chorizo sausage along with ready-to-use canned tomatoes with garlic and onion.
Chorizo sausage comes in a variety of spiciness; choose the one you prefer.
Other types of pasta can be used in this recipe, such as bow-tie or rotini.
Try fire-roasted tomatoes instead.
