You have to soften the peppers a bit before stuffing them and baking.  I use my favorite microwavable casserole dish to do this easily without creating extra pans to clean. Simply cut out the top stem and and clean your peppers, place them in the dish with a little bit of water, throw the lid on top(mine doesn’t usually cover them completely) and microwave for about 8-10 min. Check them occasionally because you don’t want them to get too soft.

  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 jar of spaghetti or marinara sauce(no sugar) or 1 14oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbs Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper


  1. Make your cauliflower rice and set aside
  2. Soften bells pepper as described above or boil them in a pot of water until slightly soft. It’s very important that you don’t over cook them because they will fall apart. Then place them in your casserole dish ready to be stuffed.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In another pan cook your ground turkey and chopped onion. Drain fat.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes,1 cup of your spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, some salt and pepper, and all of your cauliflower rice.

    Do you think you could make a batch of these and freeze them for make ahead meals? Im the only one in the house who would eat these!

      Hey Jessica! I have never put these in the freezer but I bet they would work just fine. I would wrap them individually in plastic wrap and I bet they’d be great!
