Ingredients

  • 1 recipe basic pasta, recipe follows
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped into 1/4 inch dice
  • 1 stalk celery, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound crimini or portobello mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, soaked 10 minutes in warm water
  • 1 cup basic tomato sauce, recipe follows
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley, finely chopped to yield 1/4 cup

Directions

Roll out pasta to No. 4 setting, roughly 1/8th inch thick. Cut pasta sheets into 4 inch long pieces and fold each in half. Cut roll into strips 1/2 inch thick. Take each piece between hands and roll back and forth several times to form a twisted piece. Set aside.

Bring 6 quarts water to boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.

In a 12 to 14 inch sauce pan, heat olive oil, and saute onion and celery over medium high heat until soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until sweated, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, drop pasta into boiling water and cook 1 minute until soft. Drain well and place in pan with mushrooms. Toss until well coated. Add parsley, transfer to warm platter and serve.
