Rub: Combine chili powder, black pepper, garlic, hot sauce, thyme and salt in bowl; rub all over beef. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Toss tomatoes, sweet peppers and zucchini with the olive oil, garlic, salt and black pepper. Grill or broil, turning occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. Cool and cut into 1-1/2 inch (4 cm) chunks. Keep warm.

Slice beef into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thin strips. Pat strips dry with paper towel. Heat canola oil in nonstick skillet until hot; stir-fry strips in batches, until browned but pink inside, about 2 minutes for each batch. Toss beef, vegetables, thyme, green onion, cooked penne and olive oil together in large bowl, until well mixed. Season to taste.
