While cannabis is easily added to many recipes, it may be difficult to find directions for cannabis pasta. This pasta recipe is a great example of how cannabis is used in more than just desserts! This cannabis pasta has a greenish color and a flavor reminiscent of spinach pasta.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cannabis flour
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons cannabutter, melted
- 1 teaspoon water
- Salt to taste
1. Place dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix them well. Push the ingredients to the outside edges of the bowl, leaving an open space in the center.
2. Beat together remaining ingredients and pour into the center of the bowl. Work the wet and dry ingredients together just until they form a ball. Be careful not to overwork the mixture.
3. Place the ball on a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 8 minutes, adding small amounts of flour to keep it from sticking. Knead until the mixture is smooth and elastic.
4. Divide the dough into four sections. Work with one section at a time, keeping the remaining dough in a sealed container so it does not dry out.
5. Roll the dough out with a rolling-pin or a pasta maker until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Fold the dough in half and roll down to 1/8 inch thick again. Repeat this about 10 times. Sprinkle with flour as needed to keep it from sticking to the rolling-pin. Roll the dough until it is very thin.
6. Hang the sheet of pasta dough over a dowel or off the edge of the counter to allow it to dry partially. When the dough is mostly dried but still soft, cut it into strips or any other shape.
7. The cannabis pasta will cook quickly, in about 3 to 4 minutes. Be careful not to over cook.
The cannabis pasta dough can also be used for thicker noodles or filled pastas such as ravioli or pierogi. Thicker noodles will need more cooking time, but check the noodles often and be careful not to cook too long.
