Ingredients

  • 4 Servings Spaghetti
  • 1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce 24oz
  • 1 Can Jumbo Olives
  • 1 Packet Mozeralla Balls
  • Purple and Lime Green Food Colouring

Instructions

  • Cook spaghetti according to packaged directions. 
  • Strain and separate into 2 bowls. 
  • Add 20-25 drops of food coloring to each bowl of pasta and toss well. (plastic gloves can be worn)
  • After the coloring is mixed in, add some water (about ½ cup or so) and mix again, then drain. This will get off some of the food coloring that did not soak in to the pasta.
  •  Mix both pastas together and set aside
  • Slice the olives in thirds or fourths depending how big your olive is.
  •  Place one slice on a ball of mozzarella. 
  • Add a dot of pasta sauce inside the olive.
  • Serve pasta on a plate, add spaghetti sauce on top and place the eyeballs all around.
  • Enjoy your spooky Halloween dinner!!

Spaghetti and Kids – means it’s going to be messy. So why not use some Wipeable Halloween Placemats. You can use them this year, clean them up store them with your Halloween Decorations and then bring them out again next year.

Make a smoking Cauldron for Halloween – find a large Halloween Cauldron Prop like this one and then buy a mister with lights. Most of these use tap water and create a great spooky effect.
