Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    *Ancient Harvest Traditional Whole Grain Quinoa, 1 cup
    Pacific Natural Foods Organic Beef Broth, 3 cups
    *Crushed Garlic, 2 tsp
    Basil, fresh, pureed or smashed, 2 tbsp
    Sweet peppers (bell), 3 medium
    *zuccini - Fresh, 1 cup diced
    93% Lean ground Turkey, 20 oz package
    *Sauce, Pasta Sauce, Ragu Chunky Garden Style, Tomato, Basil and Italian Cheese, 1 jar
    *parmesan (a sprinkle, optional)
    Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp

Directions

Makes 6 small servings. Heat oven to 360 and spray 9x13 dish.

I put the quinoa in a rice cooker with the broth, garlic, basil and oregano but you could do it stove-top. While that simmers, cut in half, hollow out and blanch the peppers for a few minutes to soften. The diced zuccini and turkey brown together, then add jar of sauce and let it stew in the pan until the quinoa is ready. Mix it all up, put it in the peppers and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan. Bake for about 30 minutes.

  • Used this as a basic starting point, tweaking a bit to accomodate our preferences (i.e., we don't use sauce in a jar) and reduce calories. Very tasty! - 10/9/11
