Italian Stuffed Peppers are a fun and delicious twist on regular stuffed peppers with the addition of Italian sausage! If you’re a green pepper fan, you’ll love these peppers loaded with ground turkey, Italian sausage, rice, veggies, and cheese! I love that this recipe makes 5 servings that you can make ahead of time. They make for a low carb, quick, easy, and healthy lunch or dinner! In fact, these are one of Chad’s favorite meals and I’m sure you’ll love them, too!

REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS

These bowls can easily be reheated right in the microwave for 2-3 minutes if you’re in a hurry. If you have more time you can preheat the oven to 350º and warm them back up for about 10 minutes for a quick and easy meal.

FREEZING INSTRUCTIONS

If needed, you can freeze these Italian Stuffed Peppers. Let them cool, cover with the lid, and store for up to a month in the freezer. Make sure you let the bowls sit out and defrost a little bit, so they don’t crack when you reheat them.

Ingredients 

  • 16 oz. extra lean ground turkey, 99/1
  • 16 oz. mild Italian sausage
  • 5 bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced, (35g)

  • 1 oz. parmesan cheese
  • 3 oz. part skim mozzarella cheese

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and arrange 5 oven safe containers on a cookie sheet.
  • Slice the tops of the peppers off so they will fit in the meal prep bowls (set the tops aside, you will use these later). Rinse well, place 1 in each bowl and spray with some cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Over medium high heat, cook the sausage and turkey until no longer pink. Add the onions, mushrooms, and leftover bell pepper (dice up the tops around the stem).
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes until the veggies are soft.
  • Add the seasonings, tomato sauce, paste, rice, and parmesan cheese. Mix well and stuff in peppers. Top with the mozzarella cheese and place back in the oven another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Let cool before covering with lids and placing in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.
