Dave’s Homemade Pasta with Sausage and Creamy Tomato Sauce


Simple Pasta
3 Cups unbleached all-purpose Flour
4 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoon safflower oil
Mix all the dough in a large bowl with a mixer on low.
When it starts to come together, place dough on a lightly flowered surface in a big ball

Cut Pasta into about 6 large pieces. coat with flour on each side then roll each piece through pasta machine about 3 times. DECREASING thickness every time. You can roll out by hand if you don’t have a pasta machine

Then when nice and thin, put through pasta machine on fettuccine cutter or whatever size pasta you like. Again, if you don’t have a pasta machine you can slice pasta with a knife to your desired thickness. Lay pasta on wax paper.

In a large pot boil water and pour about a tablespoon of olive oil in water and about 1 teaspoon of salt and bring water to a boil.
Sauce:
5 Large tomatoes sliced into small pieces
1 Large can pasta sauce
6 leaves basil chopped
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Sliced cooked sausage of your choice.
Put all ingredients into a sauce pan and let simmer for about 1/2 hour.
5 minutes before serving, add 1 cup of heavy cream and stir all together

Cook pasta until done, about 8 minutes.
Place Pasta on each plate, put some sausage on top and pour a generous amount of sauce over the pasta. Add a bunch of parmesan cheese. WOW! WOW! WOW! Delicious


I LOVE to add fresh mozzarella on top of sauce!
