One thing my kids always love to eat for lunch or dinner is Hamburger Helper. Yes….I serve them Hamburger Helper and we all love it! Last night, however, I was in need of something fast for dinner and didn’t have any plans, or boxes of “inspiration” in my pantry. No worries, though! I created a dinner the kids loved! In fact, as if they are just not realizing that I know how to cook, they kept saying “you made this??? for real” I don’t know if I should be insulted or flattered? Haha. Oh well……..kids, right?
Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Skillet
