Cook the Farfalle Pasta (8 oz) according to package's instructions. When pasta is finished cooking, transfer pasta to a large colander to drain. Then immediately rinse it in cold water to halt the cooking.
Step 3

While pasta and veggies are cooking, combine about 2 tablespoons of water and 20 drops of Food Coloring (to taste) in a large zip top bag. Repeat with however many additional colors you would like.

Transfer the pasta in even portions to the prepared zip top bags and seal. Shake zipper bag to combine the pasta and food coloring, and then let each bag sit for at least 1 minute to soak up the color.
