Rainbow Pasta by theresahelmer Rainbow Pasta by theresahelmer
i made this pasta salad today, i served it as a cold pasta dish (because it is so hot today in San Francisco Bay Area).

:bulletpink: All you need to make this -

prepare your pasta as you would normally, cook until pasta is al dente, rinse pasta under cold water. Divide pasta into even portions, then place them into small bowls. I used Wilton Gel Food Coloring (red, blue, orange, yellow, green and purple). Before adding food coloring, make sure the pasta has been drained thoroughly. Add food coloring then rinse pasta in cold water. Drain again. *Add your seasonings. Now you have a really eye-catching pasta dish, literally you can eat this pasta with your eyes.

:bulletred: Feel free to ask me any questions you might have.

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen: For the "dressing", toss together in a bowl with the followings: extra virgin olive oil, a smidgen chopped garlic, diced red bell pepper, diced fresh basil, a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice, fresh mozzarella cheese then diced into small cubes, grated parmesan reggiano cheese, salt and pepper.

:bulletred: Footnote - Food coloring, or color additive, is any dye, pigment or substance that imparts color when it is added to food or drink. They come in many forms consisting of liquids, powders, gels and pastes. Food coloring is used both in commercial food production and in domestic cooking. Due to its safety and general availability, food coloring is also used in a variety of non-food applications including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, home craft projects and medical devices.

Food coloring does not have any taste to them. Therefore it does not influence/alter the end result of the food you are preparing.

Quick question, my family doesn't like al dente, at all. Can I make the pasta like 'soggy' and still use the food coloring or does adding the food coloring loosen the al dente and make is consumable for childish people? Or after I add the food coloring to the al dente pasta can I like re-cook it to finish cooking it completely?

That said, this looks awesome and my younger cousins and nephew will LOVE coming over now.

Hello there! I have a little question, can you use any type of food coloring for this? Would it work with liquid ones or the ones in powder?

I am afraid I do not have the answer you are looking for! Since I've only used gel food coloring, never did experiment outside of this product, it will not fair for you if I give you an answer that could potentially incorrect.
