Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Turkey Peppers

2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/2 lb ground turkey
1 1/3 cup Tomato Juice
1 tsp Italian seasoning
16 oz grape tomato, halved
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
6 large tomatoes

4 oz Shredded Mozzarella

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Turkey Peppers

  1. Bring rice and 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium, cover and continue to boil for 25 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, add oil and onions to a large sauté pan over medium-high. Saute onions for 2 minutes, then add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add turkey, juice and seasoning. Cook until turkey is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and black pepper, cooking, covered, for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  3. Fill a large pot half-full with water and bring to a boil. Cut tops from bell peppers and remove all seeds. Add bell peppers and tops to water and return to a boil. Cook, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Remove bell peppers and dry on paper towel.

  4. Drain rice and add to turkey mixture. In a glass dish, stand bell peppers and fill with turkey-rice mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella and add bell pepper top. Bake for 15 minutes.
