Nests of colored pasta brimming with brightly dyed hard boiled eggs make a charmingly simple Easter table decoration.

Ribbons of fresh pasta are traditionally sold already twisted into portion sized nests so all that needs to be added is a trio of eggs.

Position the eggs while the fresh pasta is still soft; once it is dry, it will hold the eggs in place.
