Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Pasta Dinner

Fitness Expert

Perfect for a Halloween dinner or party! Carving the 'pumpkins' and eating the 'worms'is very enjoyable!


  • 6-8 medium orange bell peppers, washed and dried
  • 8 ounces orzo pasta or spaghetti
  • 1 (25 ounce) jar pasta sauce, warmed (I love Mezzetta Napa Valley Bistro Tomato and Basil sauce)


  1. Carve each bell pepper as you would a Jack-O-Lantern, cutting the top off and hollowing out the inside before carving a face.
  2. Discard the tops.
  3. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  4. Drain Pasta.
  5. Mix pasta with warm sauce and spoon into each individual pepper, making sure the pasta 'oozes' out the eyes, mouth, and top of pepper.
  6. Serve with breadstick 'bones'--tie a knot at the end of each breadstick, bake, and enjoy!
