Stringy orange ghoul guts are actually a healthy and gross-looking appetizer for your child’s Halloween party. The recipe calls for a cooked spaghetti squash, tomato sauce and raisins to create the perfect texture of horror. When mixed together and served in clear glasses they can be gobbled down in one delicious slurp!
What You Do:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- While the oven is warming up, cut the squash in half and puncture a bunch of holes in its skin. Then lay it flat on a lightly greased baking sheet.
- Once the oven has reached an optimal temperature, cook the squash for 30–45 minutes, or until you can easily puncture its skin with a knife. This is a great time to show your child how to set a timer.
- Allow the squash to cool.
- Warm up the tomato or spaghetti sauce in a pan.
- Scoop out the seeds from the center of the spaghetti squash and discard, or roast the seeds in a similar way you would pumpkin seeds for another treat! Fork out the “spaghetti” strands into a bowl.
- Mix several tablespoons of the sauce into the squash. The squash texture should be stringy and not too saucy.
- Sprinkle in a handful of raisins and mix together.
Scoop out the “ghoul guts” into a glass and serve! Devilishly frightening!
