I have not been able to find a pasta that I truly like, of course it is easy to buy the boxed pasta and cook when you are in a rush and you have 3 hungry kids, but let me tell you this was super easy and it only takes a couple of extra steps.
Give it a try, and you will see what pasta at home truly should taste like! and on top of that you are able to use all organic ingredients :)
500g of white flour
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon of olive oil
salt to taste
Water, just a little to incorporate ingredients
Ingredients for the bolognese sauce:
1/2 spanish onion chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 fresh carrots, shredded
1 tablespoon of fresh oregano
1/2 tablespoon of dried oregano
3-4 fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon of sweet crushed peppers, remember I use the sweet kind not the spicy
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 jar of tomatoe sauce
1 fresh chopped tomato
1/2 cup of red wine
FOR THE DOUGH (you may do this by hand or in your mixer, I chose my mixer)
In the bowl of a mixer add flour, eggs, olive oil and salt.
Mix and add a little bit of water to form the dough, until a ball is formed, then place the ball on your working surface that has been dusted with flour to prevent too much sticking.
Once its ready cook your pasta for 10 minutes or until al dente in a pot of boiling water.
Now for the sauce.
Drizzle some olive oil in a pot and preheat, get the rest of your ingredients all chopped up and ready.
Add the tomatoe sauce, mine is home made, I just crushed a whole bunch of tomatoes with some water and added them into my blender with some seasonings, it looks like regular tomato sauce but it tastes much better!
Cook your sauce for 30-45 minutes on medium heat, serve with pasta HOT!!
