These capellini pasta mummies will be the talk of your party; they're both fun to look at and fun to eat! Made with Colavita capellini nests and Colavita Pesto.

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time40 mins

Ingredients

 1 lb Colavita Capellini Nests
 2 Colavita Pesto
 ½ cup whole, pitted black olives, sliced into circles
 Provolone cheese, sliced into thin strips (you will need about 3 strips of cheese per mummy)
 Colavita Olive Oil
 8 ramekins
 Baking sheet

Directions

1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once it is boiling, salt it generously, and add the Colavita Capellini Nests to the pot. Cook according to package instructions and then drain.

2

Once you have drained the pasta, place it in a large bowl. Add the 2 jars of Colavita Pesto Sauce and stir to coat the pasta completely with pesto.

3

Heat your oven to 400°F.

4

Lightly oil the inside of the ramekins with Colavita Olive Oil and place them on a baking sheet.

5

Add the enough pesto cappellini to each ramekin, to fill it to the top.

6

Place two olive slices where the “eyes” would be and arrange slices of provolone around the eyes, one above and two below, to look like bandage strips.

7

Place the baking sheet with the ramekins in the oven for just about 2-3 minutes, until the cheese slightly melts.

8

Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
