Make your pasta dough more aesthetically pleasing with spinach! Spinach pasta doesn't just look colorful and vibrant— it tastes great, too! This beautiful pasta dough is made with fresh spinach, sautéed and puréed, which is added to flour, eggs and salt.

Roberta Dowling shares her tips and tricks for preparing the colorful dough with the added benefit of vitamin-rich spinach. After 10 minutes of kneading (making pasta is not for wimps!), let the dough rest for half an hour, then roll into angel hair, spaghetti, ravioli... Fresh pasta cooks quickly, so all your hard work will pay off when you're ready to assemble a meal. Just add your favorite sauce, freshly grated cheese and you're done.
