Ingredients

  • 1 pound 93% ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 14.5 oz diced tomatoes jar, do not drain
  • 1 cup marinara sauce or pizza sauce
  • 4 bell peppers medium
  • 2 oz pepperoni thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup black olives optional
  • red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add in ground turkey and garlic. Break the ground turkey up with a meat chopper or spoon. Heat until the ground turkey is cooked through and no longer pink, 6-8 minutes.
  • Add in Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, then stir in diced tomatoes.
  • Continue to simmer on medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, or until the meat starts to absorb the juice from the diced tomatoes.
  • While the meat and diced tomato mixture is simmering prepare the bell peppers.
  • Cut the bell peppers length wise in half and remove the seeds and membranes.
  • Pour the marinara or pizza sauce onto the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan and spread out evenly with a spatula.
  • Arrange the peppers, cut side up and evenly distribute the meat mixture into them.
  • Sprinkle the filled peppers evenly with the mozzarella cheese. Add the pepperoni on top of the cheese followed by the olives.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Sprinkle with red pepper flakes (optional).

Notes

Feel free to swap out the ground turkey for ground beef.
