Here's looking at you, kid.

What you'll need

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried
  • 1 7-oz. jar pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1 26-oz. jar prepared pasta sauce
  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, ketchup, eggs and basil in a large bowl. Using the meat mixture, form about 30 small meatballs.

  3. To make the eyeballs, press an olive into each meatball, pimiento side out. Place the eyeballs in a baking dish, cover with the pasta sauce, and bake for 45 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water. Drain and rinse the spaghetti and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil to prevent strands from sticking together. Put it on a platter or in a large serving bowl.

  5. Spoon the eyeballs onto the spaghetti, irises up, and spoon the pasta sauce around them. Makes 10 servings.
