2 tablespoons water
vegetable, roasted, for serving
pesto, for serving

- While processing the spinach, spoon the flour in a little bit at a time until a crumbly dough forms.

- Roll the strips into thick noodles.
- Once the water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon of salt and drop in the pasta.
- Cook the pasta for 3-5 minutes, or until the noodles float to the top. Drain.
