Ingredients

6 portions
  • 1 kilo nopal, diced
  • 1 onion, medium chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 150 grams short pasta, noodle or elbow
  • 1 zucchini, chopped green
  • 1 bell chili
  • 1 can mashed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable consommé, or 1 cube
  • 1/2 cups fresh coriander, chopped

Preparation

Cook the nopales in boiling water with a pinch of baking soda to cut the slime for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 of chopped onion.
In a deep saucepan, heat the olive oil and cook the carrots, onions, and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper until it thunders if you like it very spicy, if not, remove before boiling.
Add the cooked nopales to the casserole, along with the pasta previously fried in oil and the tomato puree.
Add 3-4 cups of hot water. Cook for 5 more minutes and correct the seasoning.
Finally add the zucchini and cilantro, cook for approximately 6-8 minutes adding a little water and salt if necessary. When the pasta is soft, turn off the heat.

TIPS

To improve the nutritional value of pasta, I recommend using whole wheat pasta. If you prefer more spicy add dried chili seeds.
