How to Make Homemade Spinach Fettuccine

by Katina N

Just as a warning, this is a bit involved and if you don't have a kitchen aid could get messy. This recipe came with the kitchen aid pasta attachment. This takes about 30-35 mins prep and 5 min cook.

Supplies

  • 1 Kitchen aid and pasta attachment
  • 10 Ounces Chopped spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 4 Cups All purpose Flour
  • ½ Cups Flour (for kneading)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    If you don't have a kitchen aid, there are lot of good guides on google. Here is a good link: http://busymomsmenuplan.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-make-homemade-pasta-without.html?m=1

    Step 2

    Chop 10 oz of spinach. Make sure to do the measurement after chopping since spinach normally takes a lot of room.

    Step 3

    If you use frozen spinach, make sure you wring out all of the water.

    Step 4

    Add 4 cups of all purpose flour to the kitchen aid mixer.

    Step 5

    Add in the dried spinach.

    Step 6

    Add 4 eggs to the mixture. We whisked them together so they had the same consistency.

    Step 7

    Add 1 tbsp of water to the mixture.

    Step 8

    Use the flat beater on setting 2 for 30 seconds.

    Step 9

    Switch to the bread hook and let it run on setting 2 for 2 minutes.

    Step 10

    This is what your pasta should look like when done.

    Step 11

    Shift out a bit of flour for kneading.

    Step 12

    Hand knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.

    Step 13

    Cut the dough into 8 pieces. Hopefully equal (we weren't very successful on that aspect). You will want to make sure the pasta is around 1 cm thick.

    Step 14

    On setting 2, speed 2, feed your pasta through. It's ok if it breaks a bit. Fold the pasta over and feed it through again. Make sure the dough has a small amount of flour to go through the roller.

    Step 15

    When the pasta stays together well, you are done with setting 2.

    Step 16

    Ta-da! Flattened pasta (we will flatten it more later).

    Step 17

    We did all of the pasta on setting 2 first.

    Step 18

    Now slowly increment the pasta setting to make your pasta thinner.

    Step 19

    Feed your pasta through, but don't fold the dough over setting 2. Just keep feeding your dough through the roller until desired thinness.

    Step 20

    Since the dough was really long, we cut them in half.

    Step 21

    Switch out the attachment with the fettuccine cutter attachment.

    Step 22

    Yum! The fettuccine is looking amazing.

    Step 23

    Add the pasta to boiling water for about 3 1/2 minutes.

    Step 24

    Drain the pasta

    Step 25

    Serve with your favorite main dish or sauce. View my other guides if you want to know how to make the healthier Alfredo sauce or chicken marinade used in the photo.
