Here is a recipe kids will enjoy, especially the boys, but some girls love snakes too. A little gross if you hate snakes but still fun for the kids.
Snakes on a Plate
- 1 Package rigatoni pasta -- (10oz)
- 2 Cans squirtable cheese spread
- 1 Small Jar barbecue sauce
- 16 Whole black peppercorns -- (16 to 20)
- 1 carrot
Cook pasta according to directions on package. Rinse the pasta in cold water.
To make snakes: Covering one end of the rigatoni with your
finger (to prevent leakage), carefully fill each piece of pasta with
cheese spread. Place six to eight cheese-filled rigatonis end to end on a serving platter, in a realistically curvy snake shape. Using a
toothpick, spread lines of barbecue sauce along the top of each snake
for markings. To form heads, use barbecue sauce to glue two black
peppercorn eyes onto the end opposite the tail of each snake. Peel a carrot and use peeler to make a thin triangle. These
are your snakes forked tongues. Position tongues.
