Have you ever used the belna for something other than rolling out chapatis? How about healthy spinach flavoured pasta?
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)
Squeeze all the water out, and chop the cooked spinach as finely as possible. Add beaten eggs for the moisture component - this will make a much better noodle. - 25 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My first attempt at homemade noodles! I followed DarcieA's advice - used my food processor, did not cook the spinach and did not add any water. I rolled out by hand and cut with my pizza cutter (without rolling first). I let air dry for a bit and then bundled into individual serving sizes, placed on a parchment lined baking sheet and froze (placed in plastic bags once frozen). To cook, I got my water good and boiling and dropped the pasta in frozen, it took mine just a bit over 3 min to cook. I loved it but found it too thick, I may need to invest in a pasta machine to get it thin enough :-) Cant wait to try this again! Its such a pretty green color! - 28 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
