Recipe Ingredients for Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, grated
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 large egg
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dried plain bread crumbs
1 pound ground turkey
6 Peppers, Sweet, Red
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

Recipe Directions for Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Lightly drizzle the olive oil into a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish. Whisk the onion, parsley, egg, ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese and bread crumbs. Mix in the turkey. Cover and refrigerate the turkey mixture.

  3. Cut the peppers in half through the stem. Using a melon baller or spoon, carefully scrape out the seeds and inner flesh from the peppers. Be careful not to pierce through the skin.

  4. Fill the pepper halves with the turkey mixture, dividing equally and mounding slightly. Arrange the stuffed vegetables in the baking dish. Pour the marinara sauce over the stuffed vegetables.

  5. Bake uncovered until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown and a thermometer inserted into the filling registers 165 degrees F, about 45 minutes.

  6. Transfer the stuffed vegetables to a platter and serve.
