Frankenstein Pasta for Halloween
This Frankenstein Pasta is such a great Halloween meal for kids! It’s super quick to make (less than 20 minutes) and it’s quite healthy too as Halloween cooking goes. My kids love this scary pasta dish and I’m sure yours will too!
Start by combining basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan, salt, and olive oil in a blender to make pesto. Cook whole wheat pasta in boiling water according to the package instructions. Drain and add the pesto sauce. Leave to cool. Meanwhile, chop 1½ cucumbers and stir into the pasta. To make the Frankenstein effect, pour the contents of the pan onto a platter and shape the pasta into a rectangle. Cut two thick slices of mozzarella and shape them into circles using a knife or cookie cutter. Create Frank’s hair, pupils and a mouth from olives. Use the remaining cucumber to make the Frankenstein “bolts” in the side of his neck. Rarrrr!
