Slow Cooker Bolognese & Homemade Pasta

One resolution down!  I finally made homemade pasta with my KitchenAid pasta attachment.  It was a lot of fun to make and so much easier than I thought it would be.

Since I was making pasta I didn't want to spend a lot of time making the sauce to go with it.  I decided to make this easy slow cooker bolognese.  It only took a few minutes to throw together and simmered in the crockpot all day.  Everything was fantastic.  We especially loved the homemade pasta.  I can't wait to try out all the other shapes of pasta that came with the attachment.

Slow Cooker Bolognese

1 lb Italian sausge
3 Tbsp minced onion flakes
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 cup water
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 tsp fennel seed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Cook Italian Sausage in large skillet until browned. Transfer to 5 quart slow cooker. Stir in all remaining ingredients, mix well. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with your favorite pasta.

Homemade Pasta

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
4 large eggs
1 Tablespoon Water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place flour into the mixer bowl. Turn your mixer on to speed 2 with the flat beater attached.
Gradually add the eggs, water and the salt and mix for 30 seconds.

Remove the flat beater and attach the dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes
Dough will be crumbly… you may need to add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the dough takes on a more firm consistency.

Dump dough out onto a slightly floured bread board. Knead dough by hand then shape into walnut size balls to extrude through the KitchenAid attachment. (Please follow instruction manual for additional instructions)
