Wasn't worth the effort. If I want spinach pasta I'll buy it.

I have a Philips pasta machine, which makes fresh pasta a breeze to make. There are some dishes where fresh pasta makes all the difference. The machine gets used on a regular basis.

Cut the leaves from the fibrous stems and cut the leaves into smaller pieces so they pulverize instead of wrapping around the blades. Put a cup of water in the blender and slowly add the leaves to puree them, and then strain through a sieve.

As it's an extrusion machine I don't want fibers in the juice, as they may interfere with the extrusion process by plugging the small holes in the discs. I'm thinking that straining through a cheesecloth after the sieve would do the trick.

Has anyone made spinach juice with a blender?
No but I have used finely chopped spinach instead of juice. Not at home so can't find the recipe but Google may help.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
