When my oldest daughter was young she was a VERY picky eater. For the longest time she refused to eat pasta with any kind of sauce. If we went out to dinner she would place her order by politely ordering her pasta “naked” or “clean”. That meant to sauce, no butter, no parmesan cheese. I wish I had known about making colored pasta when she was little! I’m sure I could have bribed her eat it with some sort of sauce. She has grown up and now has a 6 month daughter of her own.
