Pappardelle with Tuscan Mushroom Sauce

(Serves 2)
Ingredients:

Pappardelle:
3/4 cup flour
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/3 cup water

Sauce:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, quartered
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
Salt and pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh spinach
Thinly sliced basil, for garnish

Directions:

To make pappardelle:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix by hand or in a food processor.
Shape into a smooth ball, cover and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of #6 on a manual or electric pasta machine.
Hand cut the strips of dough into 1-inch wide noodles.

Fresh pasta only takes a couple of minutes to cook, so add it to boiling salted water when your sauce is almost done; drain the pasta.

To make the sauce:

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.  Add the garlic and tomato paste, stir together and cook for 1 minute.  Add the mushrooms and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and add the red pepper flakes.  Cook until the mushrooms begin to brown, and tomatoes are getting tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and Parmesan cheese; bring to a simmer.  Stir in the spinach and cook just long enough for the spinach to wilt into the sauce, about 1-2 minutes.

Gently toss the sauce with the drained pappardelle and garnish with basil before serving.
