Have you ever wanted to make homemade pasta? Do you long for the romance of a tagliatelle cut by hand or an afternoon spent kneading, prodding, shaping floury forms? Well, then you’re in luck. Because I’m here to give you a fabulous recipe video of how to make your own spinach pasta.
It’s rather simple, really. The ingredients are few—just eggs, flour, and some wilted spinach. With some whisking and folding, you’ll very soon have a punchy green dough. Run that through a pasta machine a few times until you reach your desired thickness. Once you’ve got that beautiful green sheet of dough, it’s time to cut. In this video, we used a solid wood pasta cutter to get long, flat tagliatelle shaped noodles.
If you’re so inclined, pop out your pasta machine tonight and get cracking. If not, wait until the weekend. Homemade pasta is the perfect Sunday afternoon activity and if you give the noodles a good freeze you can eat them throughout the week.
