I couldn't figure out what I wanted for dinner tonight.... and I thought stuffed peppers might be fun. These turned out so good. I found a similar recipe online - I didn't want to use rice - and I tweaked it a bit -- turned out pretty delicious!
4 bell peppers (I used two red & two green) - top removed/seeded.
6oz ground turkey - 93/7
1/2 medium onion - chopped
1 medium zucchini - chopped
1 cup mushrooms - chopped
1tbsp tomato paste
1 can diced tomatoes (I used no salt added for lower sodium)
mrs dash tomato basil
mrs dash garlic & herb
Preheat oven to 350.
Place bell peppers in glass baking dish (8x8 works well) - cover with foil - bake 15 minutes. Set aside.
Brown ground turkey. Set aside.
Sautee vegetables, tomatoes, and tomato paste until tender - add in seasoning to taste. Add turkey back into the frying pan and sautee for a few minutes to incorporate all the flavors. Spoon this filling into the pepper 'shells'. Top with Parmesan -- I used about 1tbsp per pepper.
Bake, uncovered, for another 15 minutes at 350.
2 Peppers per serving.
