Spinach Pasta DoughCuisinart Original Recipe
8 ounces fresh spinach
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup water
4 large eggs
1½ teaspoons salt
2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 cups semolina flour
Steam spinach until it is just wilted. Plunge it into ice water to stop cooking and maintain its bright green color. Squeeze all liquid out of spinach. Purée it with oil and water in a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade.
Place puréed spinach plus remaining ingredients, in order listed, in the bread pan fitted with the kneading paddle. Secure the bread pan in the Cuisinart® Automatic Breadmaker. Press menu button to select the Pasta Dough program. Press Start/Stop to mix and knead. While the dough is mixing, scrape the sides of the bread pan with a rubber spatula after 5 minutes, to fully incorporate ingredients. When cycle is complete, remove dough from bread pan and place on a lightly floured surface. Let dough rest for about ½ hour.
Once rested, knead dough a few times by hand. If dough is too wet, knead in 1 tablespoon of flour at time until desired consistency is achieved. Hand-roll pasta or run through a pasta roller machine.
