Fresh Spinach Noodles Recipe

Fresh Spinach Noodles Saturday stay home project 😅. 1st fresh noodle making for 2022 😁 I am happy I get to crank up the pasta maker again. I had make fresh noodles many times in 2021 but for this time I added blended spinach to the dough. Thank God it turned out great. I used the egg noodle recipe. I had to tweak the recipe a bit  because the spinach has water content, meaning I have to reduced the egg to accommodate the liquid from the blended spinach. The texture maintained the same as the egg noodles. A well balanced of nutrients in the noodles...iron from the spinach and protein from the eggs :)
