I never thought I’d ever make my own pasta. I mean some days I can’t find the time to do laundry! But when I saw how easy it was to make and that it was only four ingredients, tried it. My son also decided to give me an extra hour of sleep, so that helped. Yes, of course store-bought is much more convenient, but at least I know exactly what’s going in this pasta. Fresh is best in my book if possible.
I can “wok” in my sleep, but I may have to make a lot more pasta and practice. My cutting skills need a little work.
I made this in my Blendtec, but you can probably use a food processor (I’ve never tried) or do it by hand if you want an arm workout (where’s my emoticon when I need one, insert muscle arm here.. lol). If you don’t know my site offers free shipping and discounted rates (click the link).
TIP: ROLL IT VERY THIN, I made the mistake the first time around.
I’ve only ever tried this in my Blendtec, please email me if it works in a food processor. If you decide to do it by hand, you’ll have to knead the dough.
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp water
- 3 c. spinach
- 11⁄2 c. white whole wheat flour
1. Combine egg, water and spinach to Twister jar, and place Twister lid on jar. Hold lid with one hand, and with other hand press “Pulse” 6–8 times or until spinach is pureed.
2. Add flour and replace lid. Hold lid with one hand, and with other hand pulse 10–14 times to incorporate flour. Turn Twister lid counterclockwise during blending.
3. Dump dough on work surface, and form dough ball. Roll out dough, cut to desired noodle size with pizza cutter or knife, and let dry for 20 minutes. Boil in salted water for 6-8 minutes or until tender.
4. Serve as desired
