Homemade Pasta with Spinach

    2 hours 33 minutes

    The best thing about homemade pasta is you can add any flavourings you desire. Spinach gives a warm kick and a lovely green colour to this version.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 1/4 cups (125g) torn spinach leaves
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/4 cups (180g) plain flour

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Extra time:2hours drying  ›  Ready in:2hours33min 

    1. Combine spinach and water in a saucepan. Cover and cook till spinach is very tender. Cool slightly.
    2. Place spinach and liquid in a blender along with the egg and salt. Blend till smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough.
    3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 1 minute. Roll out very thinly on a floured surface. Cover and rest for 20 minutes. Roll dough up loosely. Cut into 5cm wide lengths. Unroll. Cut into desired lengths. Spread out on a rack to dry for 2 hours.
    4. Cook as for any fresh pasta in plenty of rapidly boiling salted water. Drain in a colander and use as desired.


    Fresh pasta needs only a few minutes in boiling water and it's done. It is finished cooking when the pasta rises to the surface.

    Worked out really well.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Tasty noodles don't really taste like spinach so my kids liked them too!  -  21 Jul 2008


    We really enjoyed these! Just a couple tips for anyone using a pasta maker to prepare these noodles (as I did). First- I didn't cook down the spinach. I used a food processor to chop the spinach and then added the water, egg, and flour and blended the dough. This saved on pans/prep time. I plan to do it this way again next time, however, I will omit the water or add more flour in order to create a more dry dough. Otherwise- flavor was very good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!  -  06 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
