So to learn the secret of creating your noodles, read on for the recipes below.

Here’s how to make your noodles from scratch:

First, you will need a large cutting board or baking sheet to roll out the pasta dough. Since you will need to use flour to make sure the dough doesn’t stick, be prepared to get a little messy! Make sure to wear an apron or old clothes before embarking on this culinary adventure. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, we’ll get to what you came for: the recipe!

1 – Spinach noodles

Put spinach in this batter … kids will never know they are eating their veggies.

What you will need:

  • Big pot
  • Wooden spoon
  • Blender
  • Strainer
  • Large bowl
  • Teaspoon
  • Large surface to roll the dough.
  • Plastic wrap
  • Knife
  • Roller
  • Pasta slicer wheel or pizza cutter
  1. Spinach pasta

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Two eggs

First, cook the spinach in a large pot for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add it to a blender along with the two eggs, mixing well. Next, get your bowl and strainer, pouring the mixture into the filter. Stir to remove excess water, then place the flour on a table or cutting board.

Pour the strained spinach and eggs in the middle of the flour. Begin to mix and fold the dough with your hands into a ball. Knead well so that all the flour is mixed with the spinach and eggs. Wrap it in cling film and sprinkle it with a little flour. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.

Once you take it out of the fridge, roll out the dough and sprinkle with flour. Cut through the dough to create a few large chunks. Take the beet noodles and place diagonally on a portion of the spinach pasta dough. Leave space between each beet noodle and then place the turmeric noodles diagonally in the opposite direction.

In other words, the beet and turmeric noodles should form “X” on top of the spinach pasta batter. Remove the noodle pieces that hang from the spinach batter and sprinkle the batter with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll it out and cut the dough into squares. Add ricotta filling and make whatever colorful shapes you prefer!

2 – Beet paste

Add the health benefits of beets in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Two eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 medium beet, diced

Rinse the large pot and fill it halfway with water. When the water is boiling, add the diced beets. Cook until smooth and pour into your blender along with the two eggs. Combine well.

Next, pour the flour onto your cutting board to make the dough. Form a circle with the flour and pour the beetroot and egg combination in the middle. Repeat the previous step, mixing and folding the dough into a ball. Sprinkle some flour on top and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.

Roll out the dough and sprinkle with flour. Cut brittle pieces to create long noodles and set aside. Leave half of the longest jobs for the first recipe.

3 – Turmeric paste

Turmeric adds a delicious touch to this pasta.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric
  • Two eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Pour the flour onto your cutting board, and then put the eggs and turmeric on. Mix with your hands until all the flour is well combined. Once again, wrap the dough in a saran wrap and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. Repeat the above process to create the length noodlesand leave half for the first recipe.

4 – Pansotti with spinach and parsley

Pansotti is an Italian pasta filled with a cheese-like filling and folded into a triangular shape. Doing so is easier than it sounds and only takes a few steps.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Four eggs
  • A handful of spinach and parsley leaves
  • Ricotta cheese

First, mix the flour and eggs on your cutting board, creating a dough. Follow the steps above to knead it into a ball and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. After taking it out of the fridge, sprinkle a little flour on top and cut the dough in half. Create a ball shape with the half and then flatten it with your hands to make a circle.

Sprinkle more flour on top and use a rolling pin to roll the dough as thin as possible. Now place the spinach and parsley leaves evenly on top of the dough layer. Stretch it out as much as you can. Then repeat the steps above for the other half of the dough, placing it on top of the first half.

Sprinkle with flour and use the rolling pin to further roll out the dough. Next, use your pasta cutter to create squares in the dough between the spinach and parsley leaves. Finally, add some ricotta cheese to each square and fold the dough diagonally. Press the edges with a fork to seal the pansotti.

Final thoughts: making your noodles is an art form

These noodle recipes will bring out the Italian pasta chef in you. While it saves time if you use a pasta maker, doing it by hand is more fun and rewarding.
