Spinach Pasta Dough
Enjoy the delicious look and taste of this homemade green pasta.
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil, optional
- 3 cups (90 g) fresh spinach, blanched
- 1½ cup (150 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon (3 g) salt, optional
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, optional
- Place eggs, olive oil and spinach into the Vitamix container and secure the lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase to the highest speed.
- Blend for 20 seconds
- Remove the lid and add the flour, salt and pepper
- Secure the lid and select Variable 3.
- Quickly turn the machine on and off to pulse 5-6 times. You will notice the dough starting to form a ball and lift off the blades.
- Remove the lid and scrape down the sides, adding a little flour if the dough looks to moist and it has not formed a ball.
- Pulse again 5-6 times.
- Remove from container onto a floured work surface and knead for 1-2 minutes. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for a half hour.
- Cut dough into four pieces. One piece at a time, while the others are still wrapped run through a pasta rolling machine starting on the widest setting and slowly working your way down to the second to last setting.
- Use the pasta rolling machine's fettuccini attachment to cut the pasta into strips.
- Place strips on drying rack and allow to dry overnight.
- Repeat for 3 other pasta balls.
For plain pasta, remove the spinach and add another egg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emyjo from Delicious This is a fantastic recipe. Used a regular Vitamix (under the cupboard, shorter version) and it worked perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Danielle1244588585 from You need the dry ingredient blender! Really wish they had specified that I need the dry ingredient blender because in the directions it said nothing and now I'm having a really hard time cleaning my vitamix 5200 model

Rated 4 out of 5 by Knjsavy from Not just fettucini I used the classic vitamix to start the mix and i did not have my pasta maker/roller with me. i just old school rolled the balls flat - eye balled the thickness and cut into lasagna strips once dried cooked lasagna up regualry - kids ate it fine until they noticed the green noodles by then they already ate "extra veggies" with spinach in the noodles. great recipe
