Homemade Spinach Pasta
If you are not using spinach, skip step 1. Use 1 1/4 cups of flour instead of 2 cups.
If you are not using a pasta maker, roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is thin; hand cut into desired shape.
Spinach pasta may require pasta maker to be 1 setting wider than you normally want because of the stickiness of the dough.
Removing the pasta from the boiling water with tongs will allow the pasta to keep its shape. Don't dump the whole pot of pasta into a strainer the way you might with dry, boxed pasta.
