Homemade Pasta in Caramelized Onion and Roasted Tomato Sauce with Shrimp

That is a long recipe title! This dish is one of my new favorites! I am sure it would be just as good if you used store bought pasta as well. Thank you Dad for my homemade pasta maker that I got for Christmas!!!! It is my new best friend in the kitchen!

Homemade Pasta in Caramelized Onion and Roasted Tomato Sauce with Shrimp


Homemade Pasta
4 cups flour
3 eggs
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tsp salt
Sift together flour and salt.
Place in electric mixer and turn on low. Add 1 egg at a time until blended.
Slowly add water and oil.
The mixture will be very crumbly and will not forn until a dough ball. Use your hand to knead for about a minute or 2.
Form walnut sized bowls with all of the dough.
Use pasta maker made for kitchen aid mixer. Insert dough balls one at a time as 1 works it's way through, add the other.
The pasta will press out slowly, but it goes faster than you think. Once you turn around for a few minutes and come back it will be way too long!
Cut the pasta and set out side by side to dry.
If you are not making the pasta right away, you can freeze it or dry it. To dry it, place on paper towels on baking sheets and set in a warm dry place overnight. I put it in my oven.


Roasted Tomato and Caramelized Onion Sauce
1/2 pound shrimp
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 onion
1/4 cup basil
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
salt and pepper
Heat oven to 400. Place tomatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle the tomatoes with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 25 minutes.
Slice on onion thin.
Peel Shrimp.
Place shrimp on a greased baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 12 minutes.
Slice basil thin.
Melt butter in pan and add onion. Cook on low heat for about 20 minutes or until caramelized, it may take longer...you do not want to cook it too fast or it will not caramelize!

Boil water, add 1 tsp salt. If cooking fresh pasta it will take about 2 minutes, it will float when it is finished. If you are cooking dried, cook for about 12 minutes. Drain when it is finished cooking.
Remove shrimp and to cool to touch. Chop shrimp into thirds.
In a large mixing bowl, add shrimp, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onion, pasta, goat cheese, basil and salt and pepper.
Stir until cheese is melted and mixed throughout.
This is sooooooo yummy!!!! I had to fight hubby for the leftovers.
