Bats and Cobwebs Halloween Dinner from Everyday Food

I love looking through some of my back issues of Everyday Food and while perusing the October 2006 issue, I came across a Halloween recipe called Bats and Cobwebs.

You have to use your imagination here but the bats are farfalle (bow tie) pasta and the cobwebs are mozzarella.

Here are the ingredients:
The recipe:The adjustments I made to the recipe are as follows:
* I doubled the recipe. Leftovers baby!
* I added some sliced onion to the recipe.
* I can never have enough garlic so I added a few more cloves.
* I added a pinch of red pepper flakes.
* Instead of chicken sausage, I used sweet Italian sausage.

This recipe was a fun, albeit far-fetched interpretation of bats and cobwebs.

It tasted okay. Not crazy good, just good.

In the future, I would not use whole tomatoes but crushed tomatoes. It was a bit watery and not as sauce-like as I like it.

Let me know what you think should you choose to make this for Halloween or any day.

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin
and have it all to myself
than be crowded on a velvet cushion."
- Henry David Thoreau

It looks good in the skillet and baked! Now I'm really hungry.

It looks deLicious! I love melted cheese atop of a casserole. It makes it look soooo good. I think sweet Italian sausage sounds like a great substitute for the chicken sausage...For some reason that just doesn't sound that good...Healthy maybe but not as good as the sausage!
