Confetti Spaghetti

28 Jan

Remember colored ketchup? It came in green and purple, blue, yellow…it threw me off. Every time I tasted it, I didn’t expect it to taste like ketchup. But it always did! Go figure. Now I can say the same for noodles. No matter what color, they still taste like noodles.

I won the Cool Mom award for dinner, and an astounded, “Mom! How did you do that?!!!” from my kids. AND it took me all of two minutes prep, and maybe ten minutes cook time. Fun for birthdays or just to add a little ‘color’ to your plate!

Ingredients:

spaghetti noodles

water

food coloring of choice

Depending on how many colors of noodles you want, prepare separate pots of water – adding food coloring of choice to each (5-10 drops depending on how vibrant you want the colors). Add noodles and bring to a low boil. Cook until al dente. Drain excess water and place noodles on a paper towel, dabbing dry. Combine all colors of noodles and serve with sauce of choice.

*Note: If you don’t dry the noodles well the colors will bleed into each other.
