Alien Spaghetti Recipe

Spooky aliens are in the house, hiding in the spaghetti. What are you going to do? Eat them of course.

In an attempt to get my nephew to eat vegetables, I fixed an Alfredo sauce and stirred in fresh spinach and pasta. He started to complain, but when I called it “Alien Noodles”, he took a bite. It’s now his favorite side dish.



  • 3 mini sausages

  • 1 eggplant

  • 3 eryngii mushrooms

  • 70g spaghetti

  • 250g tomato sauce

  • 5g bouillon granules

  • 300ml water

  • 100g mozzarella cheese

  • pepper

  • basil pesto

  • olive oil

  • 2 small ready to bake rolls, cheese if you have them

  • Two mild twiggy sticks (mini salami sticks)

Let’s Get Cooking…

  1. Cut the sausages, eggplant and eryngii into chunks.
  2. Break spaghetti in half and insert 10 sticks of spaghetti into each vegetable chunk.
  3. Combine water, tomato sauce and bouillon in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add in spaghetti and vegetables and cook until almost al dente.
  4. Add in mozzarella and season with pepper and mix to combine. Finish cooking until al dente.
  5. Transfer to a plate and drizzle on olive oil and basil pesto.
  6.  Place the rolls in the oven and bake them until slightly crusty.
  7.  As the rolls are baking, cook the noodles according to the directions on the packet and drain. Tip into a bowl.
  8.  Push the rolls onto the salami sticks then balance them in the spaghetti.
  9.  Cut the olive in half, removing the stone, and place them where the eyes should go. You may need to cut a little hole into the rolls to hold them.

This funny alien face makes a fun and wacky way to get the kids to eat their food.
