Tomato Pasta Recipe

A brilliant Tomato Pasta Recipe that will bring life to you homemade pasta's and homemade ravioli.

What about using this flavored pasta with your favorite pesto recipe. The possibilities are endless.

I've always been a pasta fanatic and I love all types of pasta but to be honest with you I never really took the time to make fresh pasta. It just seemed too much like baking and I'm a lousy baker.

But since I've started I can't stop.

Don't get me wrong, there are some really great quality dried pasta products out there. But if you have the time and you feel like making it a family event or just a personal chef's project you are going to love a making fresh pasta recipe.

It's a ton of fun.

This one is a good flavored pasta to start with because it's easy and pretty much everybody has a can of tomato paste laying around to use in the basic pasta dough base.

Tomato pasta recipe:

1½ cups of all purpose flour, sifted
¼ cup of semolina flour, sifted (You can increase the all purpose flour if you don't have semolina flour)
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
½ can of tomato paste

Take the ½ can of tomato paste and heat it in a small pan. You want it to be a little warm, not hot.

In a bowl or food processor mix the eggs and olive oil and then blend in the tomato paste until it's smooth and consistent.
