Gnocchetti Frasca

This recipe is actually a piece of nostalgia! Gnocchetti frasca was  one of the most requested pasta’s at my dad’s restaurant. It is simple to make, with few ingredients and very quickly made. Ideal for an evening, after a busy day. I know the spicy salami might scare you, but it won’t be too spicy at all 🙂

In case you wouldn’t find gnocchetti sardi, you can always use other dried gnocchi (not the gnocchi di patate!!!)

  • 10 slices of spicy salami (like Chorizo, or Salame piccante calabrese, …)
  • A cup of peas
  •  1 portion of saffron (you know, one of those little plastic thingies)
  • 150g of mushrooms
  •  2 tomatoes
  •  Salt & pepper
  •  ½ cube of chicken stock (, but veggie stock of beef stock)
  • Cup of cream
  • 40cl white wine
  • Olive oil
  • Gnocchetti sardi (but you could also use regular dried Gnocchi (NOT the same as gnocchi di patate!)

  • Slice the mushrooms, cut the tomatoes and salami in cubes
  • Put some olive oil in a pan and start heating your pan. Put all the vegetables and salami in the pan and let it simmer for a few minutes until most water from the tomatoes is gone

  • Add the white wine to deglaze

  • Add the cream, ½ chicken stock , salt, pepper and the saffron

  • Let it cook on lower heat for 10-15 minutes until your  sauce is thickened a bit and yellow

  • Cook your pasta ‘al dente’ and add the cooked pasta to you sauce
  • Mix it and let leave it on the low heat for a few minutes (2-3)

Only 2 things left to do and that is serve it and enjoy some good food 🙂
