It looks like a perfect, beautiful American pasta recipe!

I could prepare Pico de gallo, but don't know anything about that Monterey Jack cheese. How is it? Sort of pecorino, or roquefort style?

Thanks

Monteray jack is like a slightly stronger flavored, creamier and not as stringy mozzarella. It's a really good mild cheese and is my first choice for making mac and cheese.

Kades, this looks worth trying.

Luca, it's cow's milk cheese first made in Monterrey, California. Not at all like roquefort, but not as hard as pecorino. Also not as sharply flavored. Mild, semi-hard and melts well.

kades, never having made or even thought of this quick meal makes me realize I'm still a rookie cook. thanks, it'll be my next pot!

Luca,
to me this dish is more Mexican than Italian my family loves jack cheese it melts easy and when it does it gets creamy and soft it has a very nice flavor the salsa can be hot med or mild fresh or jarred. it's real easy I hope you give it a try,
kades

Thanks everybody for the info about cheese.
Kadesma, I'll surely try it (with another cheese, but this is no problem, in Italy we've got thousands of different kinds of cheese), because I'm a pasta addict!

Thanks for posting your recipe

I think Kades meant "place" pasta. Your English is fine! Sounds like a nice dish.
