Gnocchi in creamy mushroom sauce (Healthy version)

Gnocchi pasta with creamy mushroom sauce and other vegetables was healthy and tasty enough to satisfy me. I used a very very low fat cream (extra light), along with oyster mushrooms, carrots, capsicum and freshly chopped parsley. It was simple and quick, yet so fantastic. Here goes the recipe...

Gnocchi pasta - 1 cup
Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Carrots - 1 nos
Capsicum - 1 nos
Oyster mushroom - 1 cup
Freshly chopped parsley - 1 handful
Veg stock cube - 1 nos
Pepper for taste
Salt for taste
Extra light cream - 150ml
Olive oil - 2 tsp

Bring water to boil in a stew pot. Add the gnocchi pasta along with salt and cook for 10min or till its done. Strain water using a colander. Keep this pasta aside. In a wok, heat oil, add garlic paste and saute for a min. Add thinly sliced carrots and capsicum along with oyster mushrooms and stir fry for 3 min. Add veg stock cube, salt and pepper for taste, gnocchi pasta and stir well again. Add the cream with constant stirring. Finally add freshly chopped parsley and toss well till the pasta is well coated with cream. Now its done. Serve hot.

Can increase the cream quantity to 200ml. And can also substitute with cream with fat.
Looking for some other PASTA ?
