Spooky Spaghetti with Eyeballs Pasta Recipe | Halloween | Amarillo, TX

I am thrilled to be sharing this easy spooky spaghetti with eyeballs dinner recipe with you, perfect for fall and Halloween! It was so easy to make and a whole lot of fun!

What child can resist a big plate of colorful pasta with eyeballs staring right back at them? And what adult can resist how easy this dinner is to throw together? I’ll show you how easy it is to make this fun pasta recipe for your family.

Spooky Spaghetti with Eyeballs Recipe

  • 1 16 oz. package spaghetti
  • Orange and Purple Food Coloring (I used gel coloring)
  • 12 Mozzerella Balls
  • 12 Stuffed Olives
  • 3 Medium Pitted Olives
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. Granulated Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper

To Make the Pasta:

 Boil two large pots of water on the stove. Once the water reaches a boil, add half of the package of spaghettini to each pot, along with a dash of salt. Add about 1/4 tsp. of orange food coloring to one pot, and 1/4 tsp. of purple food coloring to the other pot. Boil to desired tenderness, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain pasta in a colander.

To Make the Eyeballs:

Step 1. For each eyeball, cut a small slice off the end of a green olive.
Poke a drinking straw through middle of the green olive slice, and remove the center, so there is a hole in the middle. Poke a hole through a black olive slice, and insert the cut out black olive circle into the green olive hole.
Step 2. Cut a thin slice of cheese off of the top of the mozzerella ball, so that the olives can lie somewhat flat. Stick both olive pieces onto the top middle of the mozzerella cheese ball. The olives stick surpisingly well to the mozzerella cheese- I turned my eyeballs upside down, and those olives didn’t slip at all!

To Make the Sauce:

Step 1. Combine 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. granulated garlic, and salt and pepper (to taste). Mix, and add sauce to both colors of pasta in a big bowl.

Step 2. Add the eyeballs to the top of the pasta, and surprise your kids!!

I served my four kids their spooky spaghetti with eyeballs with garlic toast.  YUM!

I also made some cute little pumpkins that I cut from cantaloupe,and turned into tasty jack o’ lanterns, complete with a little pretzel stem!

The kids were enthralled with their spooky spaghetti Halloween dinner, and loved the colors! My two year old wasn’t too sure about the eyeballs, but my other kids thought they were great! 😉
