Tri Colored Pasta

 

Today, I want to share a little project I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks. While I love photography, I love producing and creating videos just as much. Thus, I decided to share videos more often to show recipes that may lean on the trickier side. Take a look!

For the first video, I’ve decided to share my recipe for Tri-Colored Pasta. This recipe is similar to my Homemade Herbed Pasta from a while back but has it’s own mark with colors. Follow the video above for a step by step tutorial on how to create this wonder. Recipe is below

Tri-Colored Pasta

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 300g all purpose flour, divided into 3
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup wilted spinach (pat dry until most of the water is done)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons turmeric, more for stronger color
  • 2 tablespoons tomato pasta

Directions:

Green Pasta

  • Puree the wilted spinach in a food processor. When chopped finely, mix in the 1 egg (by hand or by machine)
  • Place 100g of flour on clean, flat surface. Make a dwell and pour the spinach/egg mixture in the center.
  • Using a fork, slowly mix in the flour with the spinach/egg. When it begins to get dried, use your hands to fold in the remaining flour.
  • Knead the dough until all flour is mixed in and it becomes a smooth dough.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare your pasta machine and flour it so the pasta doesn’t stick.
  • Cut your dough into 2 portions. Roll them out a little so they resemble an oval.
  • Using the largest notch, roll the pasta through the machine twice. Change the notch so that the pasta will come out thinner and roll the pasta through twice again. Repeat this until the pasta is about 1/16 inch thin.
  • Cut the pasta into whatever shape or form you wish to make.
  • Hang dry for 30 minutes.

Yellow Pasta

  • Place 100g of flour on clean, flat surface. Mix in the turmeric. Make a dwell in the center.
  • In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg.
  • Pour the egg into the dwell. Using a fork, slowly mix in the flour with the egg. When it begins to get dried, use your hands to fold in the remaining flour.
  • Knead the dough until all flour is mixed in and it becomes a smooth dough.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare your pasta machine and flour it so the pasta doesn’t stick.
  • Cut your dough into 2 portions. Roll them out a little so they resemble an oval.
  • Using the largest notch, roll the pasta through the machine twice. Change the notch so that the pasta will come out thinner and roll the pasta through twice again. Repeat this until the pasta is about 1/16 inch thin.
  • Cut the pasta into whatever shape or form you wish to make.
  • Hang dry for 30 minutes.

Orange Pasta

  • In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg with the tomato paste.
  • Place 100g of flour on clean, flat surface. Make a dwell and pour the tomato/egg mixture in the center.
  • Using a fork, slowly mix in the flour with the tomato/egg. When it begins to get dried, use your hands to fold in the remaining flour.
  • Knead the dough until all flour is mixed in and it becomes a smooth dough.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare your pasta machine and flour it so the pasta doesn’t stick.

  • Hang dry for 30 minutes.


Bon Appetit,
