So, this recipe seriously satisfied my wants for spaghetti, sloppy joes, and a hamburger all in one meal. It’s a very simple recipe, and could easily be made a little fancier by adding cheese or rice, but in the paleo world, that’s a no-go. So just stick to this easy meal, and you’ll be good to go!
Turkey Stuffed Peppers (serves 4-5)
4-5 bell peppers (any colors you want), cut in half and seeded
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 lb lean turkey meat (could also do pork, beef, etc)
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
3 tablespoons tomato paste (my hubby loves this stuff so he added the whole can…just go with your gut on that one)
Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, & pepper to taste
a few leaves of basil, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 450. Place bell pepper halves in a baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes, until they start to get soft.
2. On medium-high heat, saute the garlic and onion in a little bit of olive oil until they begin to appear translucent. Add the turkey and cook until browned. Add the can of tomatoes, tomato paste, and seasonings. Once heated through and simmering, add the basil.
3. Remove the peppers from the oven, and fill each with the meat mixture. Place back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
