My gosh, we love these stuffed peppers so much. They’re sooo easy to make, made with four different veggies (ok, one is technically a fruit), and taste seriously cheesy without being heavy or high in calories. I love pairing one (or two) of these peppers with a piece of chicken fresh off the grill or along side a big ol’ green salad. Mmm! They’re perfect for summer dining.
