    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 100g (4 oz) torn spinach leaves
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 175g (6 oz) plain flour

    Method
    Prep:1hr  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Extra time:2hr drying  ›  Ready in:3hr3min 

    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 very thin on a floured surface. Let rest 20 minutes. Roll up loosely. Slice .5cm (1/4 in) wide. Unroll. Cut into desired lengths. Spread out on a rack to dry for 2 hours.

    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.

    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 US | Canada)
