Broccoli Pasta

Italian.Chef's picture
  Frozen chopped broccoli 10 Ounce (1 Package)
  All purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2 Large, at room temperature
  Eggs 2 Large (At Room Temperature)
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon

1. In a small saucepan, add 1/2 cup of salted water and let it come to a fast boil. Add the broccoli and let it come to a second boil. Separate the broccoli with a fork to make it cook faster. When separated, cover and let cook over low heat for 4 to 6 minutes. Drain in a hand strainer and, when cool enough to handle, use your hands to press down and remove all the liquid.
2. In a large bowl with a wide top, add the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the eggs, broccoli, and oil. Using your hands or a whisk or a wooden fork, work the dough together. Keep working the dough until it forms a ball.
3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board. Knead the dough, adding more flour if needed, until smooth. The kneading will take about 10 minutes. Cover with a bowl or cloth and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
4. Using a little flour, roll the dough into a cylinder about 10 or 12 inches long. (It will look like a loaf of uncooked Italian bread.) Cut the dough into 12 pieces (about 3/4 inches thick), flatten each piece with the palm of your hand, using more flour if needed.
