CPC Grille's pumpkin ravioli recipe

- CPC Grille is a restaurant run by students - but you'd never know it.

The CPC Grille is part of the Warren Consolidated Schools' Career Prep Center's culinary program. CPC Grille is a full-service restaurant open to the public. They'll begin service again in mid-December. You can get more information on their Facebook page here.
