Homemade lettuce pasta

A few months ago we started to make our own fresh pasta instead of buying it, since it seems much healthier to us, and also, "los reyes magos" brought us a machine to cut the pasta, so it took us a very short time to do it. Likewise, today we are going to tell you the recipe to do it without the machine, which takes a little longer, but the result is worth it. Many times we add spinach or lettuce from the mini urban garden that we have on the terrace to give the dough a little color and add more quality ingredients. The result is spectacular!

Ingredients for 2 servings:
- 3.5 oz of flour
- 1 egg
- 4 lettuce leaves

- Wash the lettuce well and place it in a glass suitable for the blender.
- Add the egg.
- Beat well until the lettuce is shredded and both ingredients are mixed.
- In a large bowl, mix the egg with the lettuce and the flour.
- Begin to knead with the help of a fork and, when the dough takes on a little body, sprinkle a little flour on the counter and continue kneading there, putting the dough from the outside in.
- Knead for approximately 5 minutes until the dough is smooth.
- Cover it with the bowl and let it rest for a couple of hours.
- Knead again for another 2 minutes and begin to stretch the dough with the help of a rolling pin to make it as thin as possible.
- Cut it into strips with the help of a knife or a pizza cutter.
- Cook the pasta in boiling water with a pinch of salt for two minutes.
- Mix the pasta with the sauce that you like the most.

Bon appétit!
