Ingredients

    Olive oil spray
    1/2 cup minced onion
    2 teaspoon minced garlic
    1.0 pounds of extra-lean ground turkey
    Salt to taste
    2 cups divided low-sodium tomato sauce
    3/4 teaspoon basil paste or 1 tablespoon fresh basil
    3 large sweet red bell peppers, washed
    1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Directions

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with olive oil cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add onion and garlic to the pan. Sauté about 2 minutes, or until softened. Add extra-lean ground turkey to the pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper
. Break meat apart and cook over medium heat for 14-16 minutes, until well done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Add 1 cup of tomato sauce and 1 can diced tomatoes to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes. Add basil paste or basil to the turkey mixture. There will be about 2 cups of turkey mixture.

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and stem. Put in baking dish and spoon about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture into each pepper half. Place all stuffed peppers on a baking dish and pour the rest of the chicken broth in the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese before serving.
