Cheesy Peppy Ravioli for Kids

After spending a day swimming in the pool, 7-year-old Jacob was craving some pizza. His mom was planning to cook raviolis for dinner. Since pizza wasn’t on the menu, Jacob asked if they could add pepperoni and extra cheese to make dinner more like pizza. It was at that moment that cheesy peppy raviolis were born.

What's better than raviolis? Raviolis with pepperoni! Kids will love this dinner (and so will you).
