Homemade Green Tea Pasta With Mint Pesto

Green tea which also called as matcha, neither the name is my family's favourite and it's a risk making something with it. haha.... Yes, I dare to take the risk for this time and see what they have to say about it. I've reduced two third of the green tea powder and that is why the pasta doesn't look as green as what I'm expecting. Hopefully, my picky eater will not reject this.

Now, here's the recipe

Ingredients for Green Tea Pasta :
300gm all purpose flour
3 tspn green tea/matcha powder (I used 1 tspn)
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
a pinch of salt

Method :
Place all ingredients in a big bowl. Mix untill ingredients untill well combined. Remove dough and knead on a flat surface to form a soft, smooth and elastic dough. Leave to rest for 30 mins. Divide into 4 portions. Then cut the dough into shape as desired by machine or by hand.

Ingredients for Mint Pesto:
2 cups cilantro leaves
2 cups mint leaves
1 cup olive oil
1 tspn salt
4 tbsp hazelnut meal
2 tbsp lemon juice
(Blend all ingredient untill well mixed and store in a jar and keep refrigerated)
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta untill all dente. Strain and add in 1-1/2 tbsp of pesto and some cherry tomatoes, mix well. And serve with Parmesan cheese and shredded guava paste.

Pasta rolling is never an easy task for me. A lot of energy is needed. I think I should get a pasta machine soon. The hand made pasta looks a little thick but it's still Ok! I'll have to say the combination between green tea and pesto is excellence. It's totally GREEN and it very delicious! The addition of guava paste is a bonus. It's like having a brownie with ice-cream! haha.... GET IT! Thanks Lyndsey for your lovely guava paste. Still keeping some for something else! And about my picky eater, he loves it. I'm planning to make some on next week with more green tea powder. yay....
