    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.

    Ingredients
    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

    Directions
    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.

    Tip:

    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.

    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)
