Making Spinach Noodles with Frozen Spinach

My hero, Tamra Hartley-Smith, gave me a recipe for spinach noodles. Something similar is available online. As the recipe could be made with frozen spinach, I decided to make some.

For the recipe, you need 10 ounces of frozen spinach, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of flour.

Because the recipe did not include garlic or onions or pepper, I decided to add some of each.

Let the dough sit, covered, for thirty minutes. After it sits, divide the dough into two sections. Use a rolling pin to roll the each of the dough sections until they're 1/4 inch thick. Roll up the dough as if you are making a jelly roll, then slice the dough into 1/4 inch wide sections. Unroll the slices until they're flat and let them dry for at least an hour.

Cook the noodles in a pot of salted boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the noodles and serve. Delicious!
