Tonight we hosted the show from the West Seattle Tool Museum. Check out all of their great tools and learn about their workshops.

Check out the new restaurant Skillet in Ballard. Here's the recipe for pasta with pureed meat sauce:

Pasta with Pureed Meat Sauce, courtesy of Chef Josh Henderson from Skillet.


16oz crushed tomato

3 T grated parm

1/2 cup of onions

1/2 cup carrots

1 T sugar

2 tsp fennel seed

8 oz ground sausage

1 T oregano

1 cup chicken stock

1 tablespoon olive oil

8oz pasta

Instructions:Rough chop carrots and onions. Add olive oil to pot over medium heat and add the veggies. Crumble in ground sausage. Sautee, stirring regularly, until carmelized and crispy.

Meantime, boil water in another pot for pasta. Use a couple pinches of salt to properly season water. Add dry pasta and let cook until al dente.

When onion, carrots and sausage are done, turn down the heat and add crushed tomato, fennel seed, sugar (if tomatoes aren t sweet enough,) and two tablespoons grated parm. Add chicken stock to thin out sauce. Let simmer for about 10 minutes, adding oregano at the very end to release flavor.

When sauce is done cooking, remove from heat and puree using a hand blender or regular blender. Drain pasta, mix with sauce, and serve with extra cheese on top!
