RECIPE: Halloween Pasta Salad. Ingredients includes pasta, carrots, broccoli, cheddar cheese and zucchini cut with spooky faces. Cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, cauliflower and snow peas all work well too. Add food coloring to the pasta water or use squid ink pasta for a spooky color. Toss the whole mix with some Italian dressing and let it sit for an hour or two. Delish!
