That sounds deelish! How do you make it?

Probably tomato, cream, sausage penne for us. It's easy and satisfying. Then it's off to take the boys to collect candy. I'll have some of that as well.

We will be having our traditional Halloween night dinner of take-out pizza, doughnuts, & cider while continuing to watch the fabulous old horror movies that Turner Classic Movies has been showing round-the-clock since yesterday morning.

Depending on how the rest of the day shapes up, I may also indulge in making a pan of layered chocolate-peanut butter brownies.

Mine went in the slow cooker at 8 this morning. We're having ground beef hash and sweet corn. For desert I experimented. I had a pound cake in the freezer, so I sliced it in half lengthwise and iced it with cream cheese icing and drizzled strawberry syrup all over it. Yes I sampled it before dinner and it's awesome.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Cook the noodles and set them off to the side. I'm using leftover chicken breast from my herb roasted chicken last night. Take the noodle and make a lttle pile of the chicken, thawed/drained frozen spinach, ricotta and some grated cheese. I have some asiago leftover so I'll use that but parmesan or harvarti will work too. Add salt and pepper and roll it up like a canoli. In a baking pan I put down a layer of beschamel sauce then snuggle the little lasagna rolls in it. Then drizzle on some homemade marinara and basil. Bake at 375 for a bit and top with some more asiago or parmesan.

I never made this exact dish before, but that's how I plan on making it. lol

all the talk about chili got me thinkin so chili's been on for a few hours now. smells wonderful, and since the weather is odd, it makes sense whereas usually on this night, it's balmy with slight breeze.
acorn squash baked and filled with cranberry sauce and bourbon brown sugar and cinnamon, his mom's cole slaw, he'll get a Witches T!T for his cocktail tonight.
