I would like to make interesting, unusual home-made pasta. I am looking for ideas on what to add to the pasta dough to add colour and taste (especially taste).
Well-known additions include:
- puréed spinach
- beetroot juice (adds colour only in my experience, but little taste)
- tomato puree
does anybody know other ingredients - preferably vegetables - that work? I was thinking about pumpkin for example, but I'm unsure whether the pasta will hold together.
Update: Thanks for all the great ideas folks! I'm currently looking to get a better tool to make the pasta - cutting by hand doesn't produce perfect results - I'll start experimenting once I have it.
