3 c Flour; all-purpose

2 c Whipping cream

1 c Tomatoes; Italian plum, peel

FOR FILLING: Peel eggplant and slice 1/2-inch thick. Salt generously
on both sides. Drain on paper towels 45 minutes. Pat dry with paper
towels. Cut eggplant into 1/2-inch cubes. Heat oil in heavy large
skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft, about
5 minutes. Add eggplant and saute until beginning to turn golden brown,
about 15 minutes. Stir in wine, parsley and basil, scraping up browned
bits. Cover and cook until eggplant is tender, about 3 minutes. Season
with salt and pepper. Transfer to processor or blender and puree until
smooth. Cool completely.

FOR PASTA: Combine flour, eggs and salt in processor and mix well.
With machine running, add just enough water through feed tube to form
ball. Remove from processor. Cover dough and let rest for 30 minutes.
(Pasta dough can also be made by hand.) Cut dough into 4 pieces.
Flatten 1 piece (keep remainder covered), then fold in thirds. Turn pasta
machine to widest setting and run dough through several times until smooth
and velvety, folding before each run and dusting with flour if sticky.
Adjust machine to next narrower setting. Run dough through machine without
folding. Repeat, narrowing rollers after each run, until pasta is 1/16 to
1/8-inch thick, dusting with flour as necessary. Line baking sheets with
towels. Set sheet of dough on work surface. Place about 1-1/2 teaspoons
filling at 2-inch intervals along sheet. Roll second piece of dough. Set
atop first sheet. Press down around filling to force out air and seal
dough. Cut into 2-inch squares. Arrange on prepared sheets. Repeat with
remaining dough and filling. Cover with towel.
