Halloween recipe: Oozing Eyeballs with Spaghetti Worms
- 500 g minced turkey
- 3 tablespoons pesto sauce
- 25 g fresh white breadcrumbs
- 1 egg, beaten
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 50 g Mozzarella cheese, from a block, cut into thin sticks
- 350 g jar Newman’s Own Basilico sauce (or any other tomato and basil sauce will work!)
- 4 extra large pitted black olives, sliced into 12
- 300 g dried spaghetti
Preheat the oven to 180˚C, Gas mark 4. Place the minced turkey in a mixing bowl, with the pesto sauce, breadcrumbs and egg.
Season and mix until all the ingredients are combined. Shape into 12 meatballs and place on a non-stick baking tray.
Make a hole through the centre of each meatball with the handle of a teaspoon, but not all the way through.
Drizzle in a little of the Basilico sauce then poke a mozzarella stick into each, so just poking out the top. Top each with a slice of olive.
Bake for 20- 25 minutes until cooked through and the cheese has melted and is oozing.
Meanwhile bring a large saucepan of slightly salted water to the boil and add the spaghetti, cook for 8-10 minutes or according to packet instructions and drain well. Return to the pan to keep warm.
Place the remaining Basilico sauce in a small pan, heat gently until hot, then pour over the spaghetti and toss well.
Divide the spaghetti worms between 4 bowls and top each with the oozing meatball eyes. Serve immediately.
