The perfect sauce for your gnocchi. Smoked Chipotle chilli flakes with fleshy tomatoes crushed with garlic salt and pepper and a little bit of rape seed oil. Which in turn gives you a wonderful aromatic spicy and yet tantalizing sauce for any pasta dish!
All you do is blitz all the ingredients and gently cook through to fuse all the flavours.

This sounds right up my street – love the sound of chipotle dried flakes but I’ve never seen them – is there a specific brand you buy?
Hi Laura..I was lucky to find them in a local supermarket but I’m sure you can get them online too.
I love home cooked tomato sauce from scratch. It tastes so fresh.
I love adding heat to tomato sauce. Your recipe looks like it will be perfect to add to roasted spaghetti squash. I can’t wait to give it a try.
The smokiness of chipotle sounds great in this sauce. I love adding sauce to my vegetables!
