Ingredients:

  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (canned or fresh)

  • 1/2 cup diced onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (or a blend of dried basil, oregano, and thyme)

  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese (optional, for topping)

  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)


Instructions:

1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Drain any excess fat from the skillet.

4. Combine the Filling:

  • In the skillet with the cooked turkey, add the cauliflower rice, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine and let it cook for a few minutes until the cauliflower rice is tender.

5. Fill the Bell Peppers:

  • Stuff each bell pepper with the turkey and cauliflower rice mixture, pressing it down gently to pack it.

6. Bake:

  • Place the stuffed bell peppers in a baking dish. If desired, sprinkle shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese over the top of each pepper.
