Halloween is not a holiday I had ever considered making a special dinner for but after receiving these recipes I may just change my mind. Any of you that visit on a regular basis know I am a big fan of making homemade pasta for dinner. I also realize that a lot of people have issues and need gluten free options. The recipes below all use pastas from Explore Cuisine and were created by Lori Hirsch Stokoe.

This post is not sponsored. I just thought these recipes were fun and thought you would enjoy learning about them in time for a fun Halloween party.

  • 2 t. butter
  • 15 oz. ricotta
  • 10 oz. canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Fry sage in butter until crisp. Remove to paper towel. Then combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk to cook the flour, about two minutes. Add the milk slowly and continue to stir. Bring to barely a boil then immediately turn down the heat. Cook, whisking until thickened for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • Spread ½ c. of white sauce over the bottom of a greased 8″ square (2 qt.) baking dish. Place 2 sheets of no-boil lasagne noodles over the sauce in a single layer.
  • Top lasagna noodles with a third of the ricotta mixture. Layer with a quarter of the mozzarella. Then top with a third of the remaining of the white sauce. Top sauce with 2 more sheets of lasagne noodles to build the second and third layers the same way.
  • For the top layer, place last two sheets of lasagna over the white sauce. Top with remaining mozzarella.
  • Bake at 375°F for 35 minutes, covered with foil. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes until the lasagna is bubbling hot and the top is browning. Remove from oven and let sit at least 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with fried whole sage leaves.

  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Food Coloring
  • Jumbo Black Olives
  • Garlic Mayonnaise
  • Unflavored Gelatin Glaze
  • 1 box Explore Cuisine Black Bean Spaghetti – cooked, drained
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 T. fresh herbs, finely chopped  – such as tarragon, parsley, chives
  • salt, to taste
  • red chili flakes, to taste
  • 1 T. cooked egg yolk, grated
  1. Use the larger tube to cut the top of the egg in a circle for the iris. Remove the egg white plug. Paint the egg white plug with diluted food coloring to look like an iris. Let dry.
  2. Use the smaller tube to cut out a place for the pupil in the painted iris. Use the same tube to cut a pupil out of the black olive. Place the olive pupil into the iris.
  3. Cut off the bottom third of the egg so it will nestle in the spaghetti spoon. Reserve any hard-boiled egg yolks for spaghetti recipe.
  4. Scoop out a small amount of the egg yolk from the top of the egg to make room for mayonnaise. Squirt garlic mayonnaise into the hollow top of the hard-boiled egg, and then replace the iris plug.
  5. Paint food coloring bloodshot lines around the iris. Let dry.
  6. Finish by brushing a light coat of slightly thickened gelatin glaze over the entire eye to give an authentic glossy finish.
  7. In a medium bowl – combine olive oil with garlic, herbs, salt and chili flakes. Add spaghetti and toss. Sprinkle with grated egg yolk.
  8. Arrange spaghetti in decorative serving spoons. Place deviled eyes in center.
