Whole Wheat Spinach Pasta

In addition to my love of beautiful things, I am an absolute kitchen gadget junkie.  I can proudly say I inherit that title from my mom who started this all with an easy bake oven at the tender age of six. Fast forward many years later and I probably have every gadget and appliance known to man.  One of my beloved gadgets is this nifty pasta machine that enables me to make one of my favorites……whole wheat spinach pasta.

Ingredients:

5 oz spinach (blanched)
3 Eggs
2 Cups whole wheat flour
1 Tbls water

Directions:

Add blanched and paper towel dried spinach, flour and eggs to a mixing bowl.  Mix well.  If using a stand mixer, attach the kneading tool and knead mix for 1 minute, otherwise knead until no longer tacky.
Place ball of dough on a floured surface and roll into a pie sized circle.  Cut the circle into four pieces and again roll those pieces.  Feed each rolled piece into the pasta maker, catching the pasta as it exits the maker.

Drape over a rack until strands are dry enough not to stick together.  Cook immediately, or lay flat on a baking sheet, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
