Spaghetti Monster Eyes
While pasta and sauce are cooking open Mozzarella and begin eyeballs.
Slice two circles of Mozzarella cheese to use as eyes and place on plate or wax paper.
Cut the tips off one olive and slice two rings from it. This with be the pupils of each eye.
You can use a red bell pepper or spaghetti sauce to make the eyes look bloodshot. Kids will likely prefer sauce.
If Using Bell Peppers for Eyes
Slice top off bell pepper and cut out two nickel sized circles. Discard top.
Place each pepper circle on the middle of the Mozzarella cheese circles you sliced.
Place a sliced olive ring in the middle of each pepper circle. Next, put an olive tip on top of each olive ring. (see pic)
Now, clean, cut and seed the pepper. (Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds and ribs.)
Slice 10-15 very thin short strips of peppers for the eyes.
Place the thin pepper strips on the cheese around each eye to look like bloodshot eyes.
Prepare Spaghetti Monster
Drain the cooked spaghetti and plate plain spagheti on serving platter.
Add cooked spaghetti sauce to the pasta starting at the middle of the platter.
If using bell peppers: Using a spatula, carefully place the cheese eyeballs on the platter of spaghetti.
If Using Sauce for Eyes
Slice two circles of Mozzarella cheese to use as eyes.
Place the Mozzarella slices on the platter as eyes. Dab a nickel sized circle of sauce in the middle of each cheese slice.
Cut the tips off one olive and slice two rings from it. This with be the pupils of each eye. Place one ring one the cheese, in the middle of the sauce. Next, put the olive tip on top of the olive ring.
Use a toothpick to dip in the spaghetti sauce and then create thin lines around the "whites" of the eyes to make them look bloodshot.
Eyesbrow, Fangs and Spider
To make the spider: Cut an olive in half and place it cut side down on your spaghetti monster. Cut up the rest of the olive by slicing it vertically into the legs. Cut another olive and mak vertical slices until you have eight spider legs. Place them around the spider body on your pasta platter.
Cut an olive in half and then cut two thin slices and place them near the eyes as the eyebrows.
Cut two more slices of olive and place them below the eyes side-by-side for the mouth or "mustache."
Cut a slice of Mozzarella cheese and cut out two triangles to use as teeth and then cut two larger, "sharper" triangles to use as fangs. (See pic) Place the bigger fangs under the mouth and then place the shorter teeth inside the fangs. VvvV
Serve and enjoy!
