For this dinner, I wanted to use up some of the rescued produce I had on hand, including some gorgeous red, orange & yellow bell peppers. Now my husband isn’t crazy about bell peppers, but he’s a good sport. So I thought, everything is a series of compromises – he’s not big on bell peppers, but (if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you already know) he’s a big fan of cheese!

Families with kids are usually trying to sneak in some healthy vegetables whenever possible, & this is a creative way to do just that, while still enjoying a “fun” family dinner!
