Divide spaghetti among 3 resealable bags. Add a different food coloring mixture to each bag. Press out excess air from each bag and seal tightly. Shake to distribute coloring. Let stand 5 min., shaking occasionally. Drain each and lightly rinse with warm water. Drain again.
In a large bowl, combine different colors of spaghetti. Drizzle with the oil and butter. Season with salt to taste. Add the Parmesan and toss to combine.
