How To Make Green Noodles With Food Coloring

Cook the pasta per the package’s instructions (1) Leave the pasta a little firm. I took mine off about one minute early. This helps the pasta withstand the dying process.

Prepare several bowls (or large Ziplock bags). Pour two tablespoons of water into each bag or bowl, followed by ten to twelve drops of food coloring. To prevent the dye from staining dark bowls, I suggest using them.

After the pasta is cooked, use a colander to remove any excess water. Toss the pasta with the food coloring using tongs (2) Mix well ( 3).

Let the pasta sit for about five minutes. After that, transfer the pasta to the colander and rinse it with cold water. Transfer to your sensory bin or a dark bowl.

Let the pasta sit in your refrigerator for one hour. Your hands might get stained if you don’t let the pasta dry completely.

Pat the spaghetti with a paper towel to ensure it is completely dry. You can proceed if no color comes off!
