Not only that, but it gives you the chance to play with your food. I don't mean pushing away the peas or the Brussels sprouts your husband or wife insists you eat; I mean actually play with it. Like roll out your favorite pizza dough into a spider, gut it and then fill it with macaroni.
I mean, seriously, how cute is this spider breadstick-pasta combo? It's like a bread bowl but so much cuter. Clearly you're going to need this for Halloween, so I'm going to tell you how to make it. You start with a canister of refrigerated pizza dough, and you roll it into a big ball.
After that, you want to pull off a piece of the dough to make a head, and then another, bigger piece to make the body. You want the head big enough to put 2 spooky eyeballs on it. And some fangs. How awesome are those fangs?
Then you roll out 8 smaller pieces of dough into gross little legs. You can do 6 legs, but I found 8 to be more realistic. (Given the nightmares I have of spiders attacking me, I think I know how many legs they have.)
Then you assemble the beast, sprinkle with a little "hair," stick it all onto a baking sheet and let it brown to utter perfection.
After it's been browned nicely, you gut it (muahaha!) and fill it with "bloody" macaroni.
Don't worry, the macaroni isn't actually bloody. That's gross. It just looks like gooey insides though, right? Totally cool. And now it's time for you to freak the heck out of your friends and become the "cool" parent with your kids.
