Dinner doesn't get a lot of attention on Halloween, nor should it. But you do want to give the kids something in their bellies before trick-or-treating. This monster meatballs and spaghetti recipe
is a cinch to prepare (just five ingredients!), and the kids will love the ghoulish theme. Olive slices make the meatball eyes for this dish. Use whatever spaghetti sauce you like, either homemade or from a jar.
Check out these Halloween dinner recipes, too:

- Monster Face Pizza - These English muffin pizzas will scare and delight kids of all ages.
- Bat Wings - Technically, these are just deliciously moist and juicy chicken wings (baked, not fried), but if you call them bat wings, the kids might just want to eat something other than candy on Halloween night.
