There is no comparison to fresh made pasta. Making pasta with spinach is the same as basic pasta dough. Adding spinach to the dough is a great way to get green vegetables in to your family.
Things You'll Need
- 4 cups flour
- 4 large eggs
- 1 (10 oz) package frozen spinach, thawed
- Food Processor
- Heavy duty electric mixer - KitchenAid w/dough hook attachment
- Pasta cutting machine
Cook spinach in microwave oven for 7 minutes stirring half way through.
Drain, strain off liquid. Cool and squeeze out any excess liquid.
In a food processor; puree the cooked, cooled spinach.
Add the egg to the spinach; pulse to combine.
Pour the flour into a heavy duty mixer (KitchenAid) with a dough hook attachment. Add the spinach & egg mixture.
Slowly incorporate flour into eggs/spinach mixture until a nice dough is formed.
Knead by hand or by machine until smooth as baby skin about 10 minutes.
Cut pasta as desired.
