Halloween Dinner Ideas Your Kids Are Going to Howl Over
Chicken Boo-dle Soup
Chilly Halloween nights were made for Chicken Boo-dle Soup. This easy-as-can-be recipe uses food coloring to turn basic bowtie pasta into spooky bats. Creating the Pumpkin-shaped carrots is easier than you might think.
This is one that adults will love too. Pumpkin Alfredo is full of fall flavor thanks to ingredients like pumpkin puree and nutmeg. Just be sure you don’t accidentally use a can of pumpkin pie filling instead of puree!
Candy Corn Pizza
Pizza is a great option for Halloween because it’s quick, easy, and won’t hold up the Trick-or-Treating festivities. Use store-bought dough, Alfredo sauce, shredded Cheddar cheese, and shredded Mozzarella to make this recipe.
Pepperoni Pizza Pockets
Kids are going to love these handheld treats. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
Jack O’Lantern Shepherd’s Pie Stuffed Peppers
Eyeball Pasta is almost too creepy for us, but we included it for those who really like to get into Halloween. The green pasta is actually spinach pasta—just don’t tell the kids.
Finger foods don’t get much more creepy than this! This recipe calls for refrigerated pizza dough, cooked meatballs, edible eyeballs, raw spaghetti, and pasta sauce for dipping.
