Bring out your inner child by baking this Rainbow Cookie Cake
Cook pasta al dente according to package instructions.
While pasta is cooking, combine about 2 tablespoons of water and 20 drops of food coloring in a large zip-top plastic bag.
Repeat with however many additional colors you would like.
When pasta is finished cooking, transfer pasta to a large colander to drain. Rinse it in cold water.
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.
Let each bag sit for at least 1 minute to soak in the bright colors!
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.
Then transfer the pasta back to your original pot.
Repeat with the remaining colors of pasta.
Toss all of the colors of pasta together to combine the colors.
