Rigatoni w/ Eyes / World Sight Day



This is a super cute easy pasta plating idea, which was inspired by momendeavors.com on Pinterest. I'm posting it for World Sight Day (Get it, Eyes! Haha!); however, as you might imagine momendeavors posted it as a Halloween idea. It's fun and easy any day of the year! :)

What I used:

- Rigatoni

- String Cheese

- Cream cheese + Black gel food coloring (pupils)

- Marinara sauce



Note: As I noted in the Lion Pizza post (link below), a lot of times I just use string cheese because it's in small individual packages and I don't have to worry about it going bad. But here the shape of string cheese is helpful for the eyes.

Lion Pizza w/ Parmesan Crisp Mane

https://www.wearegoodatthis.com/post/lion-pizza-with-parmesan-crisp-mane---lion-day












I just boiled some rigatoni.


To make the eyes, I made some slices. Then I mixed some cream cheese with black food coloring. I snipped the corner and put some black cream cheese on each conjunctiva.





I put some sauce down and I plated the rigatoni upright. Then I put the eyes on top! So cute! Give it a try! We are good at this!
