Hey guys! Here is a new delicious spinach pasta dough recipe that you should definitely give a crack if you are trying to get extra nutrients into your system where ever you can! If you want regular pasta dough, check out my other pasta dough recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2- 3 3/4 cups 00 flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • Approximately 1/4-1/3 cup spinach juice*
  • 2- 3 drops green food colouring (optional)

Note*: You can blend up some spinach and squeeze out the juice or if you buy frozen spinach and let it defrost you can squeeze out the juice from that too.

 

Method:

  1. Place the flour, egg and salt into a mixing bowl of a stand mixer with the flat beater attachment first. Place onto a low speed for about 60 seconds. Then mix the spinach juice and food colouring together if using and then in 1/2 tablespoon increments add to the pasta dough. You want the dough to come together but not to be wet.
  2. Change the flat beater to a dough hook and on a low speed let it knead for 2 minutes.  Then place it onto a lightly floured bench and knead by hand for 2 more minutes. Cover the dough and let it rest for 20-30 minutes. Then divide the dough into 4 portions and put through a pasta roller to make sheets of pasta perfect for lasagne, or even my Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne roll-ups!
  3. After rolling your pasta out, be sure to use flour or semolina to keep them from sticking together. Have a big pot of boiling salted water handy and place the pasta into the pot and cook till tender, anywhere between 3-6 minutes. Drain and drizzle with olive oil to avoid pasta sticking.
