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.
