HALLOWEEN WITH PASTA DI PIAZZA

Halloween is just around the spooky scary corner and we’re here to help entertain those little monsters of yours.

Pasta Di Piazza is a family friendly restaurant with good quality food and attentive staff. We pride ourselves on offering and delivering amazing Italian food which the whole family will find delicious. So why should Halloween be any different? Mum and Dad can chill out with a plate of tasty food along with a bottle of wine, whilst the kids can be kept entertained with some scary Halloween treats, provided by our talented chefs.

We’re thinking pizza is always a good place to begin, when is it not?! Create a delicious cheesy Margherita pizza, use a dish of chopped mushrooms for some black witchy hair, pepperoni for big beady eyes and red pepper for some terrifying sharp teeth. Throw in some basil for a nose and ears and there we have it, a spooky yet delicious Halloween pizza!

If you don’t fancy pizza we’ve got a yummy Italian alternative. This pasta recipe is so easy to create at home, you can also get the kids involved to lend a hand!

Ingredients

Olive Oil

1 Garlic Clove

1 tin Chopped Tomatoes

1tbsp Tomato Puree

1tsp Sugar

Salt and Pepper

Spinach pasta

Cheese

Olives

Method

Place a pan of water onto boil for the pasta.

Peel and chop the garlic and fry in the olive oil for a few minutes on a low heat.

Pour the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and sugar in the pan with the garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste.

The water should now be boiling so add the required amount of pasta for the recommended time.

Simmer the sauce on a low heat for around 5-10 minutes, stirring every other minute.

Chop small circles of cheese. Use a straw to cut out the middle of the cheese and stuff with pieces of olive. You can also use cooked peas or pieces of sweetcorn, if the kids don’t like olives, to create a shape that resembles a scary looking googly eye.

Drain the pasta once cooked and pour onto a plate.

Spoon the tomato sauce on top of the pasta and arrange the stuffed cheese on the sauce.

And there you have it. Your very own dish of scary Halloween pasta!

However if you don’t fancy cooking this Halloween then come in for a tasty Italian treat with us, perfect for the whole family.
