One of my favorite things about summer vacation, when I was younger (as now I don’t get one haha), was always going to the movies with my family. Not only is it the perfect way to escape the heat, but it’s kind of like a mini vacation – getting lost for a few hours in the story. In honor of one of this summer’s most anticipated movie releases, and a childhood favorite of mine, I thought it would be fun to turn the ever-adorable Rex into an easy and delicious noodle art.
This dino-mite dish is prepared using Cha Soba noodles for Rex’s green color, along with Good Foods yummy, and plant based Avocado Pesto Dip, which is made from 100% fruits and vegetables (and no artificial ingredients ever). Fresh veggies and a little cheese create the rawrsome details, and step-by-step instructions keep the building process simple so even little ones can help out.

4 tablespoons Good Foods Avocado Pesto Dip, plus more for serving

Any leftover noodles can be covered and stored in the refrigerator. If you try this Toy Story inspired tutorial I would love to see! You can find even more of my cute food creations @luxeandthelady on Instagram, and on my website
