Whole Wheat Pasta

What you’ll need:

1 bag of spinach (about 8 oz) steamed and drained

1 egg yolk

2 1/2 C whole wheat flour + 1 tbsp for kneading

1 tsp sea salt

What you’ll do:

Add flour and salt and pulse until combined

Remove from food processor and knead by hand for a few minutes on a well floured area

Using a rolling-pin roll out dough until it is about 1/4″ thick
