Halloween recipe for kids


  1. Prepare large pot of boiling water.
  2. Cut each sausage into 6-7 pieces and prick them with dry spaghetti. I used 4 spaghetti sticks for each pieces of sausage creating 8 legs.
  3. Place your monsters in the pot and cook until pasta is ready.
  4. Serve with cheese & ketchup eyes, optionally making pupils out of little pieces of cooked pasta.

With thanks to my friend Monika for this “beautiful” black pasta! :)
