Spaghetti and "Oozing Eyeballs"

I just got this recipe in my email from Kraft Foods and thought it was soooo adorable for Halloween. I decided to make it for dinner! I have made meatloaf using stove top stuffing before and it turned out delicious so I knew this would be just as yummy. This is  very similar except the meat mixture is made into meatballs. The original recipe calls for olives but I didn't have any and I am not much of a fan of them anyways so I used jalapeno slices for the eyeballs. After the meatballs were done baking, I kept half of them out for dinner and froze the other half in a freezer Ziploc bag for another day. Enjoy this yummy dish and have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!

Spaghetti and "Oozing Eyeballs"

2 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken

4 sticks KRAFT STRING-UMS String Cheese, cut into quarters
4 pitted large black olives, cut into 4 slices each
1 pkg. (1 lb.) spaghetti

Heat oven to 375ºF.
Mix meat, stuffing mix, water, eggs and 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce. Shape into 16 (2-inch) meatballs. Insert 1 cheese piece into top of each meatball, with end of cheese piece just showing at top. Place on baking sheet. Top each with olive slice to resemble eyeball.
