It certainly is amazing what can be done with simple noodles, food coloring and zip-lock bags. Yes, indeed, that’s all you need! I doubt I need to go further with the instructions, but I will just for the fun of it.

You get your bag of spaghetti noodles and cook them following the instructions on the package. Then you get out your zip-lock bags and prepare the colors for your pasta strands by putting 2 tablespoons of water in each zip-lock back and 20 drops of food coloring.  Mix it up nicely to get the color you want — more or less drops of food coloring. 

When your pasta is cooked, put it in a strainer and pour cold water over it.

You’re now ready to have some fun putting strands of cooked noodles in the various zip-lock bags. Once the bags are full of noodles, zip the bag closed and mix the noodles in the food coloring making sure they are thoroughly covered. Let this set for about a minute before returning the noodles to the strainer.

Once the colored noodles are in the strainer, give them a cold water rinse and return them to the pot where you’re going to mix the colored noodles together.

Serve your pasta however you like. It will be a great hit with your family.
