This week,  Rachel Lampen and Kristen Mitrakis, owners of Rock Paper Scissors Custom Events, show Tina Redwine how to whip up some scary good Halloween party ideas. 

Eyeball pasta
Ingredients:
  • 5 Pepperazzi pickled sweet red cherry peppers (found on the olive bar in most grocery stores) OR 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 5 mini mozzarella balls
  • 5 pitted black olives
  • half of a package of dried spaghetti or tagliatelle
  • jar of prepared spaghetti sauce
Preparation:
  1. Place one mozzarella ball in each Pepperazzi. If using tomatoes, halve the cherry tomatoes and use a small, sharp knife or a teaspoon to remove the seeds. Cut the mozzarella balls in half. Place one half inside each tomato, trimming the edges if necessary to fit.
  2. Make a small incision into the mozzarella and push a slice of black olive into it to create a vertical pupil (like a goat’s eye).
  3. Boil the pasta as directed on the package. Meanwhile, heat the spaghetti sauce. When the pasta is done, spoon sauce over it and arrange the stuffed eyeballs on top.
