It wouldn’t be wrong to call Linda Miller Nicholson a “pasta artist,” because her hand-made pasta is work of art. Nicholson creates impressive colorful pasta like rainbow fusilli or magic macaroni that don’t only look great but also taste great.
To add vibrant colors to her pasta, she only uses natural ingredients. For example, parsley gives the pasta green color, turmeric is responsible for yellow, while beets and blueberries provide the purple. Best of all is that all these colors are vibrant even when you cook the pasta.
Check out some of her works below.
Celebrating the culturally diverse melting pot that is this sometimes flawed, but nevertheless beautiful country I call home. #weareallimmigrants #happy4thofjuly #pasta (made with beets, harissa, yogurt, butterfly pea flowers, eggs, & flour. cooked photo coming on the 4th, so you can see the degree to which the colors hold)
I feel so guilty when I eat tiny pasta hats because I imagine a tiny pasta person toiling in the sunshine getting a sunburn on his tiny pasta head while harvesting tiny pasta produce for a tiny pasta dinner that I will also then eat, thus ruining Tiny Pasta Person's tidy little life. I'm the WORST, but isn't this tiny pasta hat adorable, tho?
This tortellini (tiny) -tortelli (medium) -tortelloni (large) mandala was supposed to be 10x bigger, but it turns out I do not have the zen-like prowess of a Tibetan monk. 🌈Instead I am an impatient commoner whose hands & soul got tired after the 3 hours it took to build as-is. 🌈I'll never reach enlightenment in this lifetime, but at least I can take comfort food refuge in all the pretty-like-a-peacock pasta.
I visited @homeandfamilytv & made these pretty tortellini alongside ever-lovely @iamdebbiem. Catch the episode on @hallmarkchannel this afternoon, or view it at the link in my profile, where you can also get the full recipe for this tortellini, filled with burrata & served with spring vegetable puree.
