We searched high and low for a vegetable and turkey stuffed peppers recipe.  I tried a few but never LOVED what I was eating.

Then I found a recipe similar to this one and decided to switch up based on what I had in the fridge and it turned out great!  I had never made a stuffed pepper like this before but I have always wanted a healthier stuffed pepper recipe.

Usually, my kids and husband are not so excited about stuffed pepper recipes because they are not crazy about the pepper consistency. But to my surprise, My husband said this is his favorite meat stuffed peppers recipe yet!  I think it is a huge win because it has zucchini in it and that is not on his list of favorite veggies.
