GREEN SPAGHETTI was a HIT with Baby Girl and the other babies! I had been given 4 boxes of spaghetti. To color cooked pasta: Cook it in boiling water, Strain, and run cool water over the noodles to keep it from sticking. Pour the cooked spaghetti in a big bin and add more water so the noodles don’t dry out…eyeball this. You don’t want spaghetti soup! Add food coloring and stir.
