Gnocchi with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Gnocchi’s are a sort for pasta for potato lovers. They are small Italian dumplings made from potatoes, flour[all purpose flour, buck wheat flour], egg and shaped into small ovals with ridged pattern on one side. Alternatively they can also be made from semolina flour[info source:BBC].  Gnocchi is eaten as an alternative to soup or salad. They are usually home-made in Italian households. But they are also available in packets in supermarkets. I have made store bought Potato Gnocchi and accompanied with fresh tomato sauce, but it can also accompanied with freshly prepared Pesto Sauce as well as various other sauces.

Andalusian Gazpacho/Spanish Chilled Tomato Soup

For this month’s IFC, Sharanya of Just Not The Cakes challenged us with exotic array of Andalusian cuisine from Spain. Andalusia is one of the most populous and second largest communites in Spain, stretching south from sunny cities Cordoba and Seville all the way to Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea. The name “Andalusia” was derived from the Arabic word “Al – Andalus”. Andalusia boasts many delicious foods offering travellers a chance to stimulate their palette while exploring.

You don’t have to be in Spain to enjoy an exotic Spanish soup, do you? So, I chose to do the Gazpacho and share it with you all. Gazpacho is a tomato based vegetable soup, traditionally served cold. It is a very healthy soup made with fresh vegetables and consumed during the summer months to beat the heat. Gazpacho is made with stale bread, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, capsicum, vinegar, olive oil and salt. The best part of gazpacho is, we can prepare this soup previous day and serve it either as an appetizer or as a main course with toasted bread. How hard can it be?

Today I made creamy, healthy, tangy and flavorful pasta without adding cheese, it was really a winner. The addition of milk made it creamy, the addition of spinach made it healthy, addition of sun dried tomatoes gave some tanginess and the rest of all the ingredients gave a boost to the whole dish.
