Arugula Pasta

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1-1/2 cup fine semolina flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp Della Terra Garlic Olive Oil

Combine arugula and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and process until it forms a fine green paste. Place all dry ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine. Mix 1/4 cup of the arugula paste with eggs and Della Terra Garlic Olive Oil. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and pulse until the mixture begins to form a ball. Add a little water if dough is dry.
