St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, which means everything will be green! Green clothes, green decorations, green food and drinks…everything you can imagine.

Get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day by serving this green pasta to your kids! They’ll be excited and curious to see what it tastes like.


  • pasta of your choice
  • green food coloring
  • melted butter
  • grated parmesan cheese

Step 1: Add water to a large pot and stir in green food coloring. Make sure the water is a dark green, so the pasta absorbs enough color. 

Step 2: Bring the water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the directions on the box. 

Step 3: Drain the pasta, then toss it with melted butter and parmesan cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
