Halloween Spaghetti – A Spooky spaghetti to make your Halloween spookier!!!

An unusual spaghetti with spaghetti sauce that tastes really good and looks spooky.

Spaghetti are usual at home but my children never prefer them to pasta. It is Halloween and I am ready to cook a special Halloween Spaghetti this year. Normal spaghetti are tastier and go right with spaghetti sauce but this is not a normal spaghetti. My children were aware that I was going to prepare the same spaghetti but they didn’t know about this colorful dish!!! 😊

Halloween Spaghetti

Last summer we had been to China where they made different spaghetti items in different colors. Since this Halloween, I wanted to make black spaghetti. I took my son to the supermarket and asked him to select a food color to make the spaghetti. Luckily, he chose the same color that I had in my mind…. Black!!!!!! It would be perfect if we made black spaghetti this Halloween…

We bought some other colors too and reached home to make spaghetti together. We all decided that black would be appropriate for the Halloween time and started our process. We took a large bowl of water, put the spaghetti in it along with half a tbsp of food color and required an amount of salt. As the water started boiling the spaghetti became black. We drained the water away and added oil so that the strands will not stick together.

And that’s it!!! Our Halloween Black spaghetti is ready in no time!!! We can make it spicy by seasoning with some chili flakes and some spices. We can also make it cheesy by using melted butter and cheese in the spaghetti. Normal spaghetti sauce would go well and that’s what I did!!!!

The black and spooky Halloween Spaghetti attracted my children and they ate it well with interest. The advantage is that the color would never stick in your tongue!!! 😊 Next time we would try a different color with cheese!!!! And now, I will teach you the simple stems that would make this special spaghetti…
