Prep: 2 minutes  Cook: 10 minutes  Yield: 1 pound


1 lb pasta
green food coloring
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups whole milk

orange food coloring

1. Add 10-20 drops of green food coloring to the boiling water for the pasta.
2. If you want it more green, add more food coloring to pasta after you drain it. It will absorb the color and create some darker and lighter strands.
3. Melt butter in a small sauce pan and add flour, cook for 1 minute.
4. Add milk and stir/whisk until incorporated.
5. Add salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
6. Stir in cheese.
