Sweet Sausage Stuffed Banana Peppers {Grain Free}

A few months ago I ended up in the basement of this lovely Italian taven in the Fingerlakes region of New York after a day of wine tasting. I was so tempted to dive face-first into a bowl of rigatoni, but I kept my cool and stuck with protein and salad.

On the specials menu, they had this appetizer everyone was fawning over. Stuffed peppers. I checked the ingredients and was super excited to find out it was something I could devour without guilt… which I did, in about five seconds. They were total magic. I took notes while we ate and vowed to make my own when we got home. Here’s the recipe!
