Ghoulish Eyeball Pasta With Blood Red Sauce

We don't make a huge deal of Halloween here but I do allow the kids to go Trick or Treating to a few neighbours houses. We'll also be tucking into this ghoulish eyeball pasta with blood red meatball sauce on Saturday evening whilst we watch the rugby. It's super easy to make, especially if you use ready made meatballs (I'm all for time saving) and if you can't find spinach tagliatelle just use plain pasta and stir in some pesto sauce to make it green. The spider is optional!
