    mailbelle's Note:

    Customize the color of your pasta to go along with whatever holiday, sports team, etc! Since the 4th of July will be here soon I'm posting this with red, white and blue pasta, but the possibilities are endless! Use red and green pasta for Christmas, Easter egg colors for Easter, or for Halloween use orange pasta and throw in some black olives. For Superbowl parties or tailgating, match the pasta to your team's colors! We're Auburn University fans, so I make a blue and orange pasta salad. Have fun with it!
