Happy happy Monday! I’m posting this recipe a little bit late today, but the good news is that this dinner can come together in about 40 minutes. It’s another Grace discovery…a recipe for Whole 30 Stuffed Peppers inspired by the blogger Hello Spoonful. It was filling enough for my football players and delicious for all of us. This recipe serves 4.
