Add the paste and continue to cook by stirring.
Then add the chopped parsley, salt, red pepper flakes and mix them well.
Finally add the mashed potatoes and mix then remove it from the stove and leave it to cool.
Divide the dough in 2 pieces.
Roll out the dough pieces lengthwise as a rectangular on a lightly flour plain surface by using a rolling pin.
Place the filling on the half of the rectangular.
Enclose the filling by covering the other half on the filling.
Then cut the dough in strips (lengthwise).
And again cut the strips in half.
