Last year I made Spicy Spaghetti Worms in Jack O’ Lantern Pepper Pumpkins.
And since Halloween is right around the corner, I made them again.
My girls really love these things. Granted, they didn’t actually eat the peppers – and I knew they wouldn’t. The good thing about this, is you can still rinse the spaghetti sauce off the pepper when dinner is over and reuse the beloved “pumpkins” in an omelet or fajita at a later meal.
But there’s something special about being served a bowl of bloody (tomato sauce) worms (fettuccine) in a jack o’ lantern (carved pepper).
The peppers themselves were just carved with a small paring knife in much the same design I would do on a pumpkin. And for the meal, you can totally just throw some bottled spaghetti sauce over some noodles (I used fettuccine because they’re thicker), or you could try out my spicy version by printing this free PDF:

As a side note, I also threw in some chunks of pepperoni into this batch, which is totally optional (but delicious).
