Can you believe how long it has been  since there has been a Muppet Movie in theaters? I’m so excited that such a fun family movie is coming out for Thanksgiving! In anticipation of The Muppets premiering next week, we thought you might enjoy some Muppet inspired cuisine!

Animal’s Punk Pink Pasta is not only cute, but simple to make and deceptively delicious! The pink coloring for the pasta comes from beets, who wouldn’t want to devour pink pasta?

Thanks, Disney Family!
