red bell pepper
tablespoons vegetable oil
medium onion, diced (about 3/4 cup)
tablespoon minced garlic
pound 85% lean ground turkey
cup Prego® Marinara Italian Sauce
cup shredded Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack or Swiss cheese
teaspoon ground black pepper
Heat the oven to 375ºF. Cut the tops off the peppers and reserve. Remove and discard the core and seeds. Place the peppers, cut-side up, into a 3-quart shallow baking dish.
Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until browned, stirring often to separate meat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender. Stir in the sauce, cheese and black pepper. Spoon the turkey mixture into the peppers. Top with the reserved pepper tops, if desired.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
Easy Substitution: You can substitute 2 cups cubed cooked chicken for the ground turkey. Cook the onion and garlic in the skillet as directed above in Step 2. Stir in the cooked chicken, sauce, cheese and black pepper and stir to combine.
