Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry fettucine, or other pasta
  • Food coloring (rainbow colors)

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta al dente according to package instructions.

  2. While pasta is cooking, combine about 2 tablespoons of water and 20 drops of food coloring in a large zip-top plastic bag. 

  3. Repeat with however many additional colors you would like.

  4. When pasta is finished cooking, transfer pasta to a large colander to drain. Rinse it in cold water.

  5. Transfer the pasta in even portions to the prepared zip-top bags and seal. Wear gloves, and use your hands to carefully combine the pasta and food coloring.

  6. Let each bag sit for at least 1 minute to soak in the bright colors!

  7. Then, one color at a time, transfer a bag of pasta back to the colander and rinse with cold water to remove any extra food coloring. 

  8. Then transfer the pasta back to your original pot. 

  9. Repeat with the remaining colors of pasta. 

  10. Toss all of the colors of pasta together to combine the colors.

Food should look like food. Most food coloring is just unhealthy chemicals and have been linked to hyperactivity. Even if the person doesn't get hyper, it really isn't good for them. If you want to color your pasta, please choose natural food dyes. They are out there. You just may need to look. Just cause something is sold on the store shelves doesn't mean it won't harm you.

Omg, what a creative and fun idea this is. When I saw the picture and title I thought it was gonna be so complicated, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see how easy and basically effortless it is to make colorful pasta. This would be so cool to do for different holidays...can you imagine pastel pasta for Easter or red pasta for Valentines Day?
