Recipe by Chef John
"Rotelle pasta, an assortment of colorful sweet and hot pepper rings, and slices of zucchini make the wheels in this easy summer pasta. There are all types of summer vegetables you can use, and if you have some leftover chicken you're trying to sneak into something, this would be perfect."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

We found this to be an enjoyable low calorie meal, but I thought the sweet and spicy flavors would be more bold. Tasted most strongly of canned tomato sauce, but the zucchini, peppers, and pasta were a nice array of textures. Not something I would make again without a lot of changes, but I really liked the concept.
I am vegetarian so I substituted the fish with a mock spicy sausage- green onion for yellow onion- also had to sub the yellow and orange peppers for a green bell pepper!! Everything else was the same! Just used what I had at home!! Just the right amount of spice and sweetness!! Thank you for the recipe- my neighbor gave me a bag of fresnos and I had no idea what to do with them-- now I have a better understanding!:)
