Two Items to Keep in the Kitchen at all Times.

#1 Ravioli- preferably Rising Moon Organics

#2 Pesto- preferably Dr Hummus Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

Both of these items are great to keep around. 
You can create many wonderful meals with them. Even together! I can always take whats in my kitchen and throw together a great meal. Bonus of them both, they are vegetarian and only 200 calories. (serving or ravioli is about 200 and the entire container of pesto is 200.

Here are two easy, fast and kid friendly meals using these items.

Ravioli recipe:
1 package ravioli
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley 
hand-full of sliced mushrooms
4-5 grape tomatos 
1 clove garlic
parmesan cheese

Directions: boil ravioli (i boil in veggie or chicken broth cause it makes it taste better) while steaming mushrooms and tomato, drain ravioli after soft-about 8 minutes, toss to all ingredients together and sprinkle with parmesan.

Pizza Bite Recipe:
Sun-dried tomato pesto (taste just like pizza sauce only better)
pita bread
mozzarella cheese

Tear pita bread into bite size, paint with pesto, sprinkle cheese and bake in oven about 350 until cheese is melted and pita begins to crisp. These are so delicious and Owyn loved them.
