    About this recipe: Have you ever used the belna for something other than rolling out chapatis? How about healthy spinach flavoured pasta?

    Ingredients
    Serves: 2 

    • 100g torn spinach leaves
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 175g plain flour

    Directions
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:13min 

    1. Combine spinach and water in a pan. Cover, and cook till spinach is very tender. Cool slightly.
    2. Place spinach and liquid in a mixie 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)

    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)
