Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

This is my favorite meal. Mmmm… mmm… good.

If you’re looking for a meal to last a few days or feed more than two people this is a great “go to” meal for hosting a dinner or for feeding your family. Of course it’s tasty but it’s colorful too, and I am one that believes that presentation is half of the taste.

A few plus sides to this recipe, it can easily be gluten free choosing your ingredients wisely AND it’s pretty healthy and nutritious! It’s like getting to have a lasagna minus all of the noodles and less cheese that makes it yummy but healthier, right?!

Give this meal a shot, I cannot wait to hear how much you love it too!
