McKenzie Delling

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.
