Homemade Pasta 3 Ways – Fettuccine – Green Colored Pasta – Part II
Pasta Dough – Green Color
- 2-1/4 Cups Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 1/4 Heaping cooked fresh spinach (all water drained)*
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1-2 Tablespoons Water (as needed)
- Dash of Salt
* Spinach will add more liquid to the dough, so add water accordingly.
Put eggs and cooked spinach together in food processor and pulse to combine. Combine flour and salt in mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour.
Add to the middle well of flour the eggs and spinach mixture, olive oil, and water. Add flour or extra water to dough as needed – consistency should not be sticky. With beater attachment, beat on low for 1 minute. Switch to dough hook and mix for 6 minutes. Take dough and cover in plastic wrap and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
Once you have rolled your pasta sheets, let them dry out a little before putting them through the cutter so that they won’t get stuck. If not eating the fettuccine the same day, simply toss with a little bit of flour and make into “nests”, put on cookies trays and freeze. Then store in zip lock freezer bags.
