My son just hit the picky stage of toddlerhood where he won’t eat *just anything.* This Rainbow Pasta meets all the requirements for his approval — it looks tasty, would be fun to play with, and involves spaghetti. That’s a win for mom!
Sometimes you’ve just got to get creative with dinner, especially when dealing with picky eaters.
Easy Rainbow Pasta
What you need to make Easy Rainbow Pasta:
- Spaghetti Noodles
- Liquid Food Coloring
- Ziploc Bags
Cook the spaghetti noodles al dente, according to package directions and strain.
You’ll need one Ziploc bag for each color of pasta you want to make. Add two tablespoons of warm water to each bag and add about 20 drops of food coloring to the water.
Put the strained noodles into the bags and mix the colored water all around.
Strain each bag individually, and rinse with cold water to remove excess food coloring.
Mix all the noodles together to get a colorful bowl of rainbow pasta.
Your kids will be so excited to try these colorful noodles. And wouldn’t this make a fun way to serve pasta salad?
Or even better — throw it in a tub for a fun and creative sensory bin!
You could even have a rainbow-themed dinner, with yummy rainbow cupcakes as dessert!
