Fresh Pasta with Wild Mushroom Tomato Sauce

Fresh Pasta:
4 ounces silken tofu
2 cups semolina flour
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon water
Pinch of kosher salt
Bread flour, for dusting

1.Put all the ingredients, except the dusting flour, into the bowl of
a food processor. Process the mixture until it forms a ball. Remove
the dough from the processor, place it on a lightly floured work
surface, and knead a few times until it is smooth and elastic. Cover
with plastic wrap and rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
2.Cut the pasta dough into quarters. Roll one quarter out using a
pasta machine or with a rolling pin. Roll it nice and thin, about
1/16th inch in thickness, or on the number 5 setting of a pasta
machine. Be sure to dust frequently with bread flour. Cut the
pasta into the desired shape, using a pasta machine, or cutting it
with a sharp knife or pizza wheel. Repeat the procedure using the
remaining pasta dough.
3.Cook the pasta in a generous amount of boiling, salted water for
2 to 3 minutes, drain, and toss with wild mushroom tomato sauce.

Yield: 1-pound pasta dough

Wild Mushroom Tomato Sauce:
2 cups water
2 ounces dried porcini mushrooms
2 tablespoons high-heat oil such as safflower or grapeseed oil
1 large white or yellow onion, small dice
1 pound shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup red wine
4 vine-ripened tomatoes, medium dice
15 fresh basil leaves, cut into chiffonade
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1.Rinse the dried mushrooms in very cold water to remove any
grit and dust. In a small pan, bring 2 cups of water to a simmer and
remove it from the heat. Add the dried mushrooms and let them
steep for 10 minutes. Drain the mushrooms and allow the liquid to
sit undisturbed.
2.Heat a large saucepan over high heat, add the oil, and wait until
it shimmers. Add the chopped onions and stir with a wooden spoon
until the onions are lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add the
shiitake mushrooms and sauté until they release their juices and
begin to brown. Add the minced garlic and the oregano and stir
for 2 minutes. Add the red wine and simmer until the liquid has
reduced by half.
3.Add the diced tomatoes and the reconstituted porcini
mushrooms. Carefully pour in the top three-quarters of the
mushroom soaking water and discard the remainder, which may
contain dust and sand. Simmer the sauce for 10 minutes over low
heat. Stir in the basil and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Yield: 4 cups sauce
