Julie's stuffed peppers

February 21, 2018

One of the most creative cooks I know is my sister Julie.  Not only is she an incredible cook but she cooks very healthy.  At one time in my life I lived with her and Jim and lost 10 pounds!

We love stuffed peppers, my dad loves stuffed peppers, on Sunday when she sent me this pic I had to try her recipe.  She "wings" it but I did some measuring when I made it so I could duplicate it for next time or share it with my subscribers.  Here it goes.....Julie if you have anything to add please email us!

 

                                                            Julie’s stuffed peppers

 

4 red, green or yellow bell peppers, use tops of peppers chopped in your sauté

1 pound turkey sausage

1 egg

1 cup cauliflower rice

1/2 cup Panko

1/2 cup Parmesan, plus some for top and serving

1 shallot,  chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp dry basil

1 tsp dry oregano

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

Marinara sauce, I use Mezzetta, sweet basil.......... Julie makes her own sauce.

 

Cut tops off the peppers, or cut in half, as pictured, place in a casserole dish, I put a little sauce on the bottom of the dish.

 

Sauté the onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, chopped peppers in a tablespoon of olive oil. Let cool.

 

Mix turkey sausage, egg, cauliflower rice, panko, parmesan, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.  I use my hands but you can use a fork or spoon. 

 

Incorporate the sauté mixture with your turkey mixture, ½ cup marinara sauce. Mix well.

 

Stuff peppers, put a little sauce on top, and some parmesan cheese

 

Bake at 375 for 40 min or until internal temp is 180.  Serve with Marinara sauce and parmesan cheese.
