"I'm a middle child, so I have a need to stand out. This pasta salads fills that need, in both presentation and taste. This is the potluck show stopper that will have everyone asking 'Who brought that pasta salad?!'"

tri-color rotini pasta
red food coloring
green food coloring
blue food coloring
yellow food coloring
dried parsley flakes, or to taste
ground black pepper
green bell pepper, diced
Please refer to the "Cook's Note" if your personal choice is not to use food coloring :) On a related note, if you are choosing to go for the tie dyed effect, the recipe should say to use regular rotini pasta, not the tri colored (though the tri colored is delightful if you forgo the coloring). Obviously, this isn't an every night side, but something to mix things up a bit for a special occasion (the special occasion it was created for was a Tie Dyed themed baby shower). Regardless of your color stance, this is one of our family's favorite pasta salads and a nice change of pace from the standard italian dressing based pasta salads. I do recommend adjusting the sugar to your personal preference. Enjoy!
A nice change of pace from the Italian and Greek pasta salad dressings. I used a variety of garden vegetables with shell pasta, as that's what I had. I hope to have a reason to try the Tied Dyed effect sometime!
