There鈥檚 just so much comfort in knowing that there鈥檚 a box of pasta in the cabinet waiting to be cooked into a quick and easy dinner. It helps that difficult days become a whole lot better with just one twirl of a piping hot forkful of spaghetti and meatballs. Or you know, any of your favorite meat recipes. But, thanks to one Instagrammer, we鈥檙e seeing pasta in a whole new light.

Linda Miller Nicholson is changing the pasta game in a major way with her naturally dyed homemade pasta noodles. Her colorful creations range from dark as coal (thanks to activated charcoal) to bright-as-the-sun (that鈥檇 be from spices like harissa or turmeric) have already amassed more than 90 thousand followers..

She鈥檚 even made clothing (yup) out of thick noodles. Just look at this yellow halter and green skirt combo that鈥檚 made out of nothing but pasta. 鈥淐razy to think this skirt & top is made of flour, eggs, parsley, & turmeric nothing else,鈥 she wrote as a caption.

She even has experimented with stripes, spots, and argyle patterns too. The fun carbs鈥 vibrant colors are brightening her feed and our eyes with each post. That could possibly be from hunger, we haven鈥檛 decided yet.

And one of the most impressive ways she uses her colorful pasta is to remake real-life masterpieces like Vermeer鈥檚 鈥淭he Girl With a Pearl Earring.鈥 Of course, in this case, she entitled it 鈥淭he Girl with a Noodle Earring.鈥 She also pasta-nated a Van Gogh and Munich painting.
