Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

Sun Dried Tomato Pasta
3 ½ Cups Flour
4 Eggs
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Salt
2 TBSP Warm Water
4 to 5 Sun Dried Tomato pieces
1 to 3 TBSP Olive Oil

*Note: Depending on how much oil you get from the Sun Dried Tomatoes will determine how much Olive Oil you will need to use. You need a total of about 3 TBSP.

Puree Sun Dried Tomatoes and Olive Oil. Being sure to eliminate all Tomato chunks.

In Kitchen Aid Mixer; using flat beater mix all ingredients together for 2 minutes. Switch the beater to the hook for 2 minutes. Need by hand for about a minute. Let set for 15 minutes. Using Kitchen Aid Pasta attachment; slowly feed a small portion of pasta through the roller at a time. Start on setting 1 and adjust to desired thickness. (I run each piece of dough through the roller at least 6 or 7 times for desired consistency.)
Once all pieces are rolled out, put through desired cutter or cut by hand. Put Pasta in Boiling salt water and cook until done being sure to stir regularly.

*Note: I find it works best to let pasta slightly dry out before cutting. This eliminates it from sticking together before it gets to the water.
For any uncooked pasta; let dry completely before storing.
