Expert Tips

If you would like more spice, add 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.

Remove the ribs of the jalapeño chile when you remove seeds to reduce the heat.

If desired, reserve about 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water when draining, and stir some in when tossing the pasta if more liquid is needed.
