Gnocchi Sardi Pasta with Asparagus Ragù

I am away in Tuscany this week, so I don't have many opportunities to blog, sorry. I will try to be more active next week, in any case, here is as recipe (super easy) I tried last week, and really like it.

For the Asparagus Ragù I chopped the asparagus spears, put the tips aside and discarded only the very ends (the wooden parts). I chopped a small white onion and placed everything in a pan with olive oil.

I cooked them for a few minutes and then I added Italian tomato passata sauce. I cooked the sauce for a little more, until the onion and asparagus spears were soft, and then I added the asparagus tips. 5 more minutes (the tips don't need long) a bit of black peppers, a drizzle of olive oil, and ready to serve!

For pasta I used the gnocchi sardi from Grofalo, which I found to be particularly suited to this chunky sauce. If you aren't Vegan you can add some grated parmesan.
