These pasta dishes are infused with color to brighten up your family's dinner. But the color isn't all for show – the same compounds that give carrots their orange hue and spinach their deep, green leaves signal they also contain nutrients. That's right: The bright-colored food in the produce section (not the cereal aisle) mean that these vegetables are packed with a pigment called beta-carotene. The beta-carotene in carrots, spinach, bell peppers and other vegetables, and even some grains, tells you that you'll be getting an extra dose of nutrients in your meal.
More good news: Most of these colorful pasta recipes have only a few ingredients, saving you time in the kitchen – and money at the grocery store. So get clicking – and cooking!
