Healthy Turkey & Mozzarella Stuffed Peppers

I’ve been seeing alot of stuffed pepper recipes out in blog land so I wanted to put my own healthy spin on this one.

This dish was super easy to prepare and boyfriend approved. Eating healthy can still be tasty.


4 assorted peppers, tops sliced off and seeds removed

1.5 lbs ground leanest turkey

28 oz can of diced tomatoes, drained

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp tomato paste

2 stalks celery, diced

1 yellow onion, diced

2 tsp garlic, minced

2 tsp  dried oregano

1 tsp dried basil

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tsp salt

1 c 1% mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and saute for 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and continue sauteing for another minute.

Add the ground turkey and brown with the veggies. Approx 5 minutes.

Add the diced tomatoes, salt, basil, oregano, and red pepper. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, until sauce isn’t runny. Remove pan from heat and stir in the cheese.

Place the peppers in a baking dish and fill with mixture. Cover with tin foil to seal.

Bake peppers for 30 minutes. Top with a dash of mozzarella and SERVE!

    Lindsay, I tried to Pin this and I got something else. What am I doing wrong? I don’t do peppers but the rest of the ingredients sound yummy.

    Hope you have a blessed Easter.
