Most children are excited about Halloween and want to dress up and have some scary party food! The weather will be probably be cold when we are out and about during the evening as well.
I decided that an unusual way to get my kids to eat a hot meal with some great ingredients in would be to make some Halloween Bug Pasta. This recipe is packed full of hearty ingredients to offset all those sweets and candies!
What You Will Need
Congelli pasta shapes (you can also use spaghetti or other pasta shapes)
1 small onion diced
Diced vegetables such as carrots, peppers and squash
A can of mixed beans (cannellini beans or red kidney beans)
One can of passata or chopped plum tomatoes
Pinch of mixed herbs
How to Make Spooky Halloween Bug Pasta
First put a pan of salted water onto the stove to boil. Add a teaspoon of olive oil. Add the pasta to the pan and follow the cooking times on the pasta packet.
Next take a deep frying pan, or wok, and heat up a table spoon of olive oil. Add the herbs and onions until browned. Add the diced vegetables and the passata to the pan and bring gently to a simmer.
Then add the drained can of mixed beans and bring back to a simmer.
Take the pan of cooked pasta, drain it and add the sauce. Mix gently with a spoon.
Finally serve your Halloween Bug Pasta in a bowl with grated cheese on top!
We love this dish as it is tasty and yummy as well as having the ‘yuck look at the bugs in this’ factor as we eat!
