The woman shopped at Aldi and posted a photo of the fresh and pre-packaged ingredients as well as the final product.
To make the pasta she simply chopped up the capsicums and added them to the pan with the boiled gnocchi, tomatoes, chopped onion, garlic and parmesan cheese.
She then put the tray in the oven at about 180C until it was golden brown, sprinkling over some basil to serve.
‘This looks delicious,’ one woman said.
Another suggested people switch the dried gnocchi out for a fresh variety found in the fridge section of Coles.
‘The pumpkin one is amazing,’ the woman offered.
Single dish pasta is one of the biggest food trends of 2021.
Masterchef star Dani Venn recently shared her recipe for a single dish pumpkin macaroni and cheese.

The 34-year-old mother-of-two posted the video tutorial on Instagram and said it is super easy and fast to make, drawing parallels to the viral TikTok pasta.
‘I like it because it has half a kilo of hidden vegetables,’ the mum said.
The video starts with the celebrity chef slapping 250grams of smooth ricotta into a baking dish with 500grams of diced pumpkin.
She then drizzles olive oil over the top and adds a sprinkle of paprika and salt before popping it into the oven for 30 minutes.

When the roasted pumpkin came out she mashed it up, added half a cup of milk, cheese and pasta.
She then topped it with more cheese and baked until golden.
Her two kids gave a double thumbs up each to the easy dinner.
‘It feeds a family with leftovers, winning at life,’ she said on her post.
She suggests adding bacon to ‘amp it up’ and using a minimum of three different cheeses.
‘You can use whatever cheese you like but I recommend a minimum of three cheeses because you can,’ she said.
Think something melty like cheddar or mozzarella and something sharp like Parmesan too,’ she added.
