Turkey Stuffed Peppers are one of my favorite recipes. It’s fast, easy, and quite healthy!
- 4 large Bell Peppers (Red or Green)
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
- 1 ½ cup Ditalini Pasta (Or you can use Orzo)
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 2 large garlic cloves
- 1 medium sized yellow onion
- Italian Seasoning
- Bread Crumbs
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Turkey pepperoni slices
- Fresh Basil
Cook pasta for desired amount of time. Try not to overcook since we will be putting it in the oven for a considerable amount of time.
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees
Brown ground turkey over low to medium heat in an oiled skillet. While the turkey is almost cooked through (still a little pink) drain the excess oil and fat. Return to heat and add chopped onion and diced garlic cloves, season with salt and pepper. Once the turkey is brown add both cans of tomatoes, season with Italian Seasoning. Cover sauce mixture and simmer, stirring frequently.
Chop the heads off all the peppers and gut them. If your peppers can not stand up straight on their own try to shave the bottoms so they are even.
After draining the pasta, combine the turkey sauce mixture with the pasta.
Layer your peppers in any order you like. I like mine extra cheesy so don’t judge me 🙂
Bottom to top: Shredded moz cheese, pasta sauce mixture almost to the top, 4 slices of turkey pepperoni, big slice of fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, sprinkle Italian bread crumbs and salt/pepp.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until your cheese is all melted on top ! Enjoy!
