Christmas Bows -Red and Green Dyed Pasta

These Red and Green Dyed Pasta Christmas Bows would be a fun holiday addition to pasta salads. Super easy, simply add drops of food coloring to the boiling water and the key to ensuring that the colors don't bleed is to rinse the pasta under cold water until the water runs clear. This is a fun idea for parties and great conversation starter, not to mention kids really get a kick out of the colors:@)
Yep, it's great with elbow macaroni too.

  1. For the most vibrant color, add 20 drops of food coloring to each cup of cooking water.
  2. Cook pasta per directions on the package or until desired doneness, drain and run under cold water until the water runs clear.
  3. Add to your favorite pasta recipe and enjoy!


  1. Your bow tie pasta looks so festive Lynn!

  2. WOW, now those are some perfectly colored pasta bows! Great for Christmas!
    I also wanted to let you know that I have a new email address (closing my old address), so you have a new subscription from me and an unsubscribe from my old email as well.
