  • In a bowl, combine two eggs, one egg yolk, and spinach mixture, beating until combined.
  • Place two cups of flour on countertop, creating a well in the center (like a volcano).
  • Pour egg/spinach mixture into center of mound of flour.
  • With a fork, begin mixing egg into flour, scraping flour into the liquid as you stir liquid in a circular motion.
  • Once most of the liquid has been absorbed, begin mixing flour in with your hands.
  • Continue mixing flour until a dough forms (see picture). You may not use the entire two cups of flour. (I had about a 1/4 cup leftover)
