Are you looking to add a little whimsy to lunch/dinner? This striped pasta is not only fun but it’s also delicious. It’s called Mother In Law’s Tongue, it’s all natural and 100 percent handmade. Each color is a flavor, yellow is turmeric, orange is paprika, violet is beet, green is spinach and red is tomato. I found mine at World Market but you can also find it online through many retailers. Because the pasta is so flavorful, I think it’s best suited with a simple tomato sauce.
