This Frankenstein Fettuccine is a fun and easy Halloween pasta recipe, using a simple fettuccine sauce, green fettuccine noodles, black olives and parmesan cheese. It's the ideal Frankenstein food and Halloween dinner idea for kids and adults, a horror movie marathon or a monster themed party!
Bring 4-5 litres of water to a boil in a large sized pot. Cook as per pasta package directions. *NOTE: I had to boil the Catelli pasta I used for about 20 minutes. Once pasta is cooked al dente, drain and set aside. Add a little butter to prevent pasta from sticking together (do not rinse). Meanwhile, make Alfredo sauce: melt butter over medium heat in the same pot you used to cook the noodles (don't worry if there are a couple of noodles stuck to the bottom)
Add flour, salt and pepper and whisk together. Slowly pour in milk, whisking continuously as you pour, until combined.
Add parmesan cheese and garlic, continue to whisk until cheese melts into the mixture and becomes smooth. Continue to cook over medium heat, whisking until sauce becomes thick. *You want it to be the consistency of gravy
Whisk in green food coloring (add color with a toothpick until you get the hue you want).
Continue to whisk until color is evenly distributed. Once sauce thickens, remove from heat. Pour pasta into pot and mix well. *Sauce will thicken as it cools
Spray an 8X8 square cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and pack pasta into it with a spoon, compressing as much as you can.
Put a large square plate or platter (white, if possible) on top of pan.
Flip pan over.
Gently remove pan
For eyes: use a round cookie cutter (or something similar) and pour parmesan cheese for whites of eyes. Add a whole black olive for each eye.
Slice black olives in half for hair and place at the top, as shown. Place 1 half for nose. For mouth, scar and eyebrows, slice each olive in 4 and place as shown. Add 2 whole olives to the sides, as shown. For eyes: use a round cookie cutter (or something similar) and pour parmesan cheese for whites of eyes. Add a whole black olive for each eye.
Serve warm with garlic toast and salad.
