Gnocchi in rich tomato sauce
This is a simple Gnocchi pasta in rich red tomato sauce (rahu sauce). I have also used some mushrooms and capsicum for added flavours. Here goes the recipe...
Gnocchi pasta - 1/2 cup
Chopped garlic- 2 tbsp
Oyster mushrooms (chopped) - 1/2 cup
Capsicum - 1 nos
Spring onions (chopped) - 1/2 cup
Kashmiri chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Double concentrate tomato paste - 2 tbsp
Tomato puree - 1 small tin
Veg stock cube - 1 nos
Oil (I prefer olive oil) - 4 tbsp
In a stew pot boil water. Add pasta to boiling water and cook for 10 min. When cooked strain using a colander and keep the pasta aside.In a wok add olive oil, chopped garlic and saute for a min. Add double concentrate tomato paste, chilly powder and stir fry. Now add oyster mushrooms, diced capsicum, spring onions and cook for 5 min. Add the cooked pasta, pepper, and veg stock cube and stir for a min (water may be added). Finally add tomato puree and toss for about 2 min. Pasta is now ready to be served.
I have not added salt in this recipe as the veg stock cubes that I used contained salt, You'll may add salt if required.
