Jeannie's Homemade Pasta with Sauce, Meatballs & Short Ribs

Jeannie's Homemade Pasta with Sauce, Meatballs & Short Ribs

MeatBalls.. for each one lb of chopped chuck:
2 eggs
2 handsful of parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced really fine
3 T fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup -3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/3 cup of raw tomato sauce

Blend all, shape into meat balls and fry...set aside.


2 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
3 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes with puree. ( I
found the Best Value brand at WalMart to be
very good)
handful of dried parsley or fresh..
1 t McCormick Italian Seasoning
2 T virgin olive oil
2 - 3 leaves fresh basil ( dried basil is not the same taste)
2 packages about 3 lbs..of short ribs
1/4 cup dry red wine.. optional , but really adds to
the richness of the sauce

Remove as much fat from the short ribs as possible.
Saute them in the olive oil and the garlic
Salt and pepper the meat
Add the wine, and cook for 2 min...
Add the prepared tomatoes *see note*
Adjust the salt...add the rest of the seasonings....
Stir, bring to simmer, add the meat balls....and simmer
until done..
It'll take at least a few hours, until meat is tender.

The Tomatoes. If you have a food mill, run them
through to removes the skins. If not, use your blender.*
I have found that at times, the tomatoes are very thick.
If this is the case, add about 2 cups of the pot.

This makes enough for me to freeze some......

1 cup semolina flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
4 egg yolks
pinch salt
1/3 cup water
1 T olive oil

Mix and knead until silky... Cover and let rest for at
least a half hour.

Divide dough in half, roll out each half thin....sprinkle
with flour and let rest for 30 min.
Loosely roll up the dough and cut into strips....spread
on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with flour or corn meal...
(yes cornmeal) until ready to cook.

Drop into boiling water.....These cook quickly so
watch them. The cook time depends on how thinly
you rolled out the dough.. ..taste after 3 minutes....
you want them al dente

When pasta is done to your likeness, Toss with
sauce and serve with cheese.....and meat from
the sauce.

Pasta will serve 2 hearty eaters.....
Hook 'Em Horns!!!!
