Arugula Pasta Dough & Bucatini


5 oz fresh arugula

3 1/2 cups flour

4 eggs

1 tsp salt

water & extra flour for kneading


Blanch the arugula in boiling water for about 30 seconds, drain & run under cold water.  Squeeze out the excess water & blend the arugula with the eggs in a food processor.

I put the flour, salt & egg-arugula mix into my bread machine & let it run a few minutes on the "pasta dough" cycle.  Alternatively, you can create a well with the flour & put the egg mix & salt in the center.  Slowly incorporate all the flour into the eggs as illustrated HERE.  Then you can roll it thin with a rolling pin & cut pappardelle like I did HERE.  Or - if you have the tools - you can cut it into a tubed pasta - as I did.

Let it dry and hour or more.  To cook - simply add the pasta to boiling water & cook until it floats to the surface - usually less than a minute.  Serve with the sauce of your choice!
