I'm a really big fan of stuffed peppers. The thing I like most about them is they're creative, you can add many different ingredients, and they always seem to end up tasting great.
I used green peppers, you could use red or any kind of bell peppers for this recipe. Wash the peppers and cut around the stem to remove. Remove the stems and cut the peppers length-wise. Remove the seeds and ribs inside the peppers.
Line a baking sheet with foil, and coat with non-stick spray. Set the peppers on the pan.
Meanwhile cook the ground turkey in a large skillet over medium high heat. Stir and break up the turkey while it's cooking.
When the turkey is almost finished cooking add the sauce and seasonings to the pan. Continue to stir and cook until the meat is no longer pink.
Add the spinach and Parmesan and stir until everything is well combined.
Scoop 1/2 cup of the turkey mixture into each pepper. Sprinkle one tablespoon of Parmesan over each pepper, or any other low fat shredded cheese. Bake for 25 minutes at 450 degrees F, until the cheese has melted and is lightly golden brown.
These were incredibly delicious and full of flavor, all while being healthy and low fat. I usually like ground beef in these kind of dishes, but turkey again proved to taste just as good, if not better. I was full after one full pepper and completely satisfied. Enjoy the meal!
