This dish is not only delicious but also a perfect addition to your Halloween-themed dinner. Here's how to make it:


8 oz spaghetti

1 jar of marinara sauce

8 fresh mozzarella balls (or small, round mozzarella pieces)

Pitted black olives

Fresh basil leaves

Olive oil

Salt and pepper


Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a pot, heat the marinara sauce over low heat until warmed through. Keep it warm while preparing the "eyeballs."

Cut the mozzarella balls in half. Take one half of a mozzarella ball and, using a small round cookie cutter or a melon baller, scoop out a small section to create an indentation in the cheese ball.

Place a sliced black olive inside the indentation, creating the "pupil" of the eyeball.

Using a small piece of fresh basil leaf, make an "eyebrow" above the olive.

Repeat this process for all of your mozzarella halves.

Arrange the cooked spaghetti on plates.

Ladle some warm marinara sauce over the spaghetti, creating a "bloody" effect.

Carefully place the "eyeballs" on top of the sauce.

Finish the dish with a drizzle of olive oil, some fresh basil leaves for garnish, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

The result is a delightfully spooky and delicious dish that will surely be a hit at your Halloween dinner. Enjoy your creepy "Eyeball Pasta"!
