Adapted from Homemade Spinach Pasta
1 Cup Fresh Basil
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Water
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. I ran the basil through my mini processor first, then added it to the flour mixture in my larger food processor. Blend well until fully incorporated.
2. A) Add the eggs, B) extra virgin olive oil, C) then add the water. Blend until dough forms a ball in the middle.
3. Remove the dough and knead until smooth on a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough into four even pieces, flatten. Run the dough through the pasta rolling attachment (or other pasta rolling device) on level 1 a couple of times. Then change to level two and run through once. Change to level three and run through once. Then run through level four once and lastly at level five once. Set aside. Change the attachment to the linguini pasta cutter. Or roll the dough like a swiss roll and cut with a sharp knife to your liking.
4. Run the dough using the linguini fine pasta cutter attachment or cut by hand to your choice of pasta style.
