Ground turkey stuffed peppers

Submitted by: XCONFORMX

Introduction

easy mode easy mode
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Green Peppers (bell peppers), 3 cup, strips
    *Ragu Spaghetti Sauce (tomato sauce), 2 cup
    *Turkey, Ground turkey, 93% lean, 16 oz
    *Brown Rice, long grain, 2 cup (One bag of instant brown rice)
    Cloves, ground, 3
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    *Parmesian cheese, 6 tsp

Tips

If you want to speed up the baking process, you can boil the bell peppers for 3 minutes each prior to baking. This cuts the bake time down to 15-20 minutes but I've found sometimes it makes the peppers a little TOO tender for my taste


Directions

Pre-cook brown rice, slice green bell peppers in half lengthwise not width wise.
Combine olive oil, onions and garlic cove and saute for about 4 minutes before adding 16 oz of ground turkey and cooking thoroughly.
Combine rice, ground turkey, onions, garlic and 1 cup of Ragu spaghetti sauce and mix thoroughly.
Place bell peppers in an oven safe pan and distribute the mixture evenly in each bell pepper.
Mix 1 cup of spaghetti sauce with 1 cup of water and pour over peppers.
sprinkle 1 tsp of parmesian cheese ontop of each stuffed pepper
Cook at 375 for 30-45 minutes. When the peppers are tender it is done.


Serving Size: six (half bell pepper) servings
