    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:33min 

    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 out very thinly on a floured surface. Cover and rest for 20 minutes. Roll dough up loosely. Cut into 5cm wide lengths. Unroll. Cut into desired lengths. Spread out on a rack to dry for 2 hours.
    4. Cook in plenty of rapidly boiling salted water until it rises to the top. Drain in a colander and use as desired.

    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)
