Sharing is caring!

A super easy, warming and yummy healthy Halloween recipe that’s perfect for little trick or treaters. Our Halloween Pasta in Jack O Lantern pasta pots make a delicious savoury Halloween recipe.

Simmer up a panful of delicious vegetarian pasta, perfect for warming up with on a cold Halloween night. 

Our easy healthy Halloween recipe is a one pot recipe so it’s super easy for cleaning up afterwards – we all love a one pot – don’t we?

I always think it’s nice to balance all the sugar and give the kids a proper Halloween dinner. And kids just love pasta, so this is a great, filling meal that they’ll just love.

To make the little Jack-o-Lantern serving bowls, get some orange paper cups – the insulated cups for warm drinks work best for this – and draw on a pumpkin face with black felt tip. Super easy!

The paper cup pasta pots are really portable too, so just add a wooden spoon and the kids can eat the Halloween pasta whilst they’re outdoors too.
