Homemade Spinach Pasta at Chasing Delicious

Homemade: Spinach Pasta Dough

Homemade Spinach Pasta at Chasing Delicious

Of all the doughs (bread, pie, short dough, and pasta), pasta dough may be the simplest – aside from a few bread recipes. Most pastas are a mix of just flour and water. Enriched pastas add eggs to the mix, giving the pasta a richer color and flavor. And then there are specialty doughs like this one that add flavorings and other ingredients to change the color and add flavor. Here the spinach adds a beautiful green, and a hint of earthy greens in the flavor.

So, the recipes are simple enough. What about the process to make pasta? While it can be time consuming (you have to knead and then continuously roll the pasta out, folding it in on itself, to create a tough structure that will hold up to boiling) it is easy and quite fun, especially when you get to the cutting and shaping stage. Every time I make pasta at home, my kitchen-hating friends and family will inevitably find themselves next to me at the island, working away on the dough and creating one of dozens of pasta shapes. There’s just no getting around it; pasta may be the most fun item to make in the kitchen.
