Preparation of green noodles

  1. First clean the spinach leaves and remove the hardest part of the stem.
  2. Boil the vegetables for 2 minutes in a pot of boiling salted water, then drain and squeeze it well so that it releases all the water. And finally, let it cool down.
  3. Once lukewarm, blend it thoroughly until it becomes a cream (you shouldn’t need to add water since, in any case, there is likely to be some left from cooking).
  4. Now take a large bowl and put inside the flour, the eggs at room temperature, the spinach cream and a pinch of salt.
  5. Start kneading vigorously and, when the eggs are well blended, transfer everything to a floured work surface and continue to work the mixture.
  6. When you have obtained a compact dough, wrap it in cling film and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
  7. After the rest time roll out the dough with the help of a rolling pin or with the pasta machine.
  8. Let the pastry dry for a few minutes, roll up and cut the noodles.
  9. Gradually place them on a floured surface and let them dry before cooking and seasoning to taste.

How to season green noodles

The dressing of green noodles is not at all difficult to choose. In fact, although there are spinach in the dough, the taste will be very light and can be easily combined with many ingredients , first of all the cream and earthy flavors. For this reason we advise you to prepare a quick dressing with mushrooms, creating a sauce with a few blended mushrooms and cream or working only with sautéed mushrooms and a drizzle of oil. The green tagliatelle with mushrooms, in both versions, will not make you regret your recipe.

Have you ever heard of pasta alla gingara ? This sauce is also not bad with these fresh egg and spinach pasta shapes. The green tagliatelle alla gingara enhance the taste of tuna, cherry tomatoes, chilli and black olives, for a simple but tasty first course.

Also, how not to combine a classic cream cheese with speck and walnuts? All winter flavors but perfect for any occasion.


We recommend consuming the cooked tagliatelle at the moment, while raw they can be kept in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days under a clean cloth. From raw you can always freeze it already portioned in the freezer.
