In that case, you might want to go the uncolored pasta route, and dress the plate up with, say, fan-shaped strawberry garnishes or a little unexpected something else. When I make this dish again, I might stir in some pine nuts for texture, but otherwise, wouldn't change a thing. And that includes the pasta color! ;)"
