The "eyeballs" that top our spooky casserole are made from mozzarella cheese and sliced olives. But the cheesy, baked pasta that lies below is a real treat that everyone will enjoy.

Made the recipe as is and it tasted great! I used a mixture of bow tie and shell pasta because I didn't have enough bow tie and didn't feel like going to the store. Also, you can always add to the recipe by adding fresh basil or oregano to amp up the flavor. Served this with a simple green salad and bread sticks. It was a hit with the family.
