Fresh pasta is a wonderful treat, and much easier than you’d think. Turn this dough into your favorite form of pasta and serve with your favorite low-sodium marinara sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cups white whole wheat flour

Directions

  1. In a blender, mix together basil leaves, eggs, and oil until smooth.
  2. Set the flour on a clean surface and create a well. Pour the basil and egg mixture into the well. Mix with a fork until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly tough. Knead the dough 5-7 times and then allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Knead until smooth. Roll flat or feed through pasta machine. Cut into strips. Hang the pasta to dry slightly as you prepare the water.
  4. In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add the pasta, stirring as it goes in so that it does not stick together, return to a boil and cook for until tender (2-6 minutes).
