How to make it
- Remove casing from chorizo if present. Crumble it then brown the chorizo with garlic in a 4-qt Dutch oven. Drain off the fat.
- Glug in the broth and salsa into the Dutch oven. Add the chipotle pepper, oregano, and cumin too and stir it up. Bring it to a boil then reduce the heat and let it simmer covered for 15 minutes.
- Stir in the pasta and zucchini and let it simmer for another two or three minutes (stirring occasionally) until the pasta is tender but still firm.
- Remove the Dutch oven from heat and stir in 1/3 cup of the mozzarella cheese and cilantro.
- Transfer to a warm serving dish. Sprinkle on the last of the cheese and garnish with that sprig of cilantro.
