Dyed Red, White and Blue Noodles for a Patriotic Pasta Salad

Let's add a little flair to the summer holiday BBQ and make a Patriotic Pasta Salad with Red, White and Blue Noodles. All it takes is some red and blue food dye and this festive dish will be ready in no time. The key to not having the colors bleed together once the salad is mixed is cooking the pasta in dyed water, then rinsing it in cold water until it runs clear.
I cooked the blue noodles with 10 drops of dye, the red with 20, I like the intensity of the red... 
The colors stayed vibrant and didn't run even after being in the fridge over night. 

  1. For each cup of cooking water use 10-20 drops of food coloring.
  2. Cook pasta per directions on the package or until desired doneness, drain and run under cold water until the water runs clear.
  3. Make your favorite pasta salad recipe and enjoy!


  1. could be funny if the dyes start bleeding and mixing. :)
