Healthier version Stuffed Red Peppers – made with a combination of lean ground turkey and sausage, onion, cheese, and Italian spices
It all started last weekend when I spied bushels and bushels of beautiful red bell peppers at the farmer’s market in Nashville and learned that they were selling for just 50 cents each! Normally, at the supermarket these babies are more like $2 a piece. Since these were such a bargain and since I really adore red bell peppers…well, let’s just say that I came home with a sackful!
Aren’t they beautiful? Driving back to Knoxville, I started planning what to do with my peppers when I remembered that my sister-in-law had given me a nifty baking ban especially for cooking stuffed peppers, so problem solved! This Stuffed Red Peppers recipe is really easy to put together and can be ready in 35-45 minutes start to finish, plus the non-stick pan made for an easy clean-up as well!
Not only easy and tasty, this dish is healthy. The filling is a combination of lean ground turkey and sausage (or you may leave out the sausage for less calories) with onion, cheese, and Italian spices and was adapted from one that I found on the Dashing Dish blog. Enjoy!
