Homemade spinach pasta

I have always loved pasta. Fresh, homemade pasta has a unique taste that you can't get from conventional, commercial dried pasta. Also making pasta by hand isn't really that hard. 

Spinach is packed with zinc, folate, and lots of vitamins. 


The process is easy. Place spinach in a food processor with some flour and salt and olive oil. Blend until spinach and flour are evenly mixed. Pulse the food processor a few times and then let it run until the dough starts to come together.

Remove the ball of dough from the processor. And it's time to get your hands dirty. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, using a rolling pin. Roll it out until it is thin. 


Pasta complete! At this point you will cut the pasta into whatever shape you like. I made some spaghetti like below. 

You may use this pasta with any sauce you like. I prepared tomato sauce with potatoes, red  and yellow peppers, and some extra spinach. 



Pasta Dough:
2 cups spinach 
4 cups flour 
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp salt


The Finished Pasta:
olive oil
salt to taste 

Have fun.
