Butterfly Pea Flower Spaghetti

by - January 01, 2019

The Butterfly Pea Flower seems to be gaining in popularity lately.  We have some growing in our garden and I usually use it to brew a drink with pandan leaves.  This time, I wanted to try something different and experiment with using it to make a pasta. I made Butterfly Pea Flower Spaghetti using the Phillips Noodle Maker. To be honest, the Butterfly Pea Flower doesn't really add any flavour but it does make the pasta look unique.
