Olive Roasted Red Pepper Spinach SpaghettiWe eat with our eyes. Food should be appetizing instead of too scary to eat.

...I purposefully stayed away from creating a dish that looks too scary to eat.  It is mainly because of my experiences with my family and myself.  It is just too hard to stomach it when you see something that triggers you to think of the real stuff. 

At the end, I still want to give it a name that matches the Halloween theme.  So, I called it, Spooky Bleeding Eyeball Spaghetti.

Then, after a while, I realized, "Hey!  This is a great pantry recipe.  It doesn't have to be in Halloween.  People can make it on any day at any time.  Plus, it is all vegetarian one-pot meal.  Why not?"

Anyway, other than the look is a bit of "Halloweeny", the smell of strong garlic definitely will keep the vampires away.
