Low Carb Stuffed Peppers

Low Carb Stuffed Peppers

Introduction

Stuffed green peppers using ground turkey & spaghetti squash Stuffed green peppers using ground turkey & spaghetti squash
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    12 Bell peppers (Green, Red, Orange or Yellow - your preference)
    2 jars of 25.5oz Muir Glen Organic Italian Herb Pasta Sauce
    3 lbs of ground turkey
    1 spaghetti squash

Directions

Start by preparing the spaghetti squash. I cut mine in 1/2 and place it on a pizza stone in my oven, but you can put it in a pyrex dish with some olive oil too. Cook for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.

Brown the ground turkey in a large skillet. When cooked, mix in 1 jar of Muir Glen Organic pasta sauce. With a fork, scoop out the center of the cooked spaghetti squash & add to the meat/sauce mixture. To your taste, add any other seasonings to the mix. (I added some garlic salt & black pepper to mine)

In a large pyrex dish, pour some pasta sauce to cover the bottom of the dish (2nd jar). Core 12 bell peppers & place them face up. Fill each pepper with the meat/sauce/squash mixture. Pour remaining pasta sauce over the peppers.

Cook for 15-20 minutes at 350.

Number of Servings: 12
