Wormy Bones for Halloween ! by Gayle Knowles-Hale

However many hot dogs you need to serve!
4 to 6 uncooked spaghetti noodles per dog.
Jar of spaghetti sauce or Salsa or Pesto Sauce for green slimey worms & bones!
Parmesan Cheese to sprinkle
Cut each hot dog into 5 or 6 pieces. Thread each piece of hot dog with 4 to 6 pieces of raw spaghetti through the hot dog. see picture above. Cook in large pot of boiling water per directions on spaghetti package. Heat sauce in another pan . Drain cooked noodles & dogs serve drizzled with sauce & sprinkle with cheese if desired. As noted this idea is not mine BUT I WISH IT HAD BEEN!!! So cool for Halloween or even kids parties DON'T YOU THINK? I called it Wormy Bones for Halloween but for Birthdays you could call it Twisted Dogs or anything you wish but it looks like FUN !!!                                                                                                                  


  1. I think Tomato Sauce would be a must for this for extra GORY flare or Green Pesto Sauce for GROSS factor!
