Halloween Pasta

pumpkin pasta

Look what I found!  The scariest noodles I have ever witnessed.  I am already jazzed up about fall so when I saw these there was no ifs ands or buts.  These were going into my cart.  Tri-colored pasta in the shapes of bats and pumpkins were the meal I never knew I always wanted.

Out of curiosity I checked to see what they used to dye the black pasta.  Cuttlefish ink:

Yummy.

Let’s analyze the pasta after it’s been cooked.  Kraft has created so many cartoon character versions of Mac and Cheese, therefore I have vast experience preparing pasta in shapes.  I usually disapprove of the artistic quality of shape pasta, but this is definitely above average.  The pumpkins are a bit busy in their design, but the bats are spot on.

I knew I was going to have to use Alfredo with this meal, the white sauce allowed us all to still see the bats and pumpkins.  Then before I remembered to take a picture I threw some spinach and basil and tomatoes in the mix.  There is nothing beautiful about the finished product, but it was mighty tasty!

Halloween Pasta is a definite winner.  I think it was 2.99.  When was the last time you had this much fun for less than three bucks?

Side note, thanks to everyone who has been clicking and reading this week.  I used to be such a regular at this game and the fact that some of you still indulge me means a lot.
