Baked Eyeballs Casserole
The "eyeballs" that top our spooky casserole are made from mozzarella cheese and sliced olives. But the cheesy, baked pasta that lies below is a real treat that everyone will enjoy.
Recipe from Prego Italian Sauce
vegetable cooking spray
1 24 ounce jar Prego® Italian Sausage and Garlic Italian Sauce
1 15 ounce container part-skim ricotta cheese
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
7 cups bow tie-shaped pasta, cooked and drained
1 8 ounce container small fresh mozzarella cheese balls (about 1-inch)
2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
Spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch shallow baking dish with the cooking spray.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 25 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Arrange the cheese balls randomly over the pasta mixture. Place a sliced olive on each cheese ball. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Easy Substitution Tip: If fresh mozzarella cheese balls are not available, substitute 1 package (8 ounces) fresh mozzarella cheese. Cut crosswise into thirds. Cut each third in 6 wedges, for triangle-shaped eyes.
