Smoky Stuffed Peppers

December 2005/January 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (37 votes)

Turkey sausage and smoked cheese give a flavorful boost to this versatile, somewhat retro dinner. We've speeded it up by microwave-blanching the peppers and using instant brown rice. If possible, choose peppers that will stand upright.

"This is now a family favorite! I love the turkey sausage. It really brings it all together. This is a delight. The peppers cook so well in the microwave and then putting them in the oven just gives them a browned finish! Great Recipe...

Stuff & Bake, No Need to Microwave

I decided not to microwave peppers...just sliced off tops, scooped out seeds and put in 9 x 13 pan raw. You gotta saute the sausage to make sure it's done. Added 28 oz. can of whole peeled tomatoes, simmered 10 mins. I cooked Rice Select 'Royal Blend' which is a mix of white, brown, wild & red rice and set aside to cool. Folded that into meat mixture along with 1 chopped yellow squash & 1 green zucchini and then the fresh chopped basil. Scoop, stuff & pack into 6 peppers (red, yellow & orange). Add 1/ 4 cup water to pan, cover with foil & cook 350 for about an hour. Uncover, top with smoked gouda cheese and bake additional 10-15 mins. Absolutely FANTASTIC!!

Super flavorful, colorful & healthy

Lots of flavor, quick and easy

The turkey sausage gives this dish incredible flavor. Microwaving the peppers not only cuts down on prep time but also leaves them slightly al dente. Followed the recipe exactly, using smoked gruyere to top the peppers. The recipe was a big hit with the fam.

Little prep time

Love this recipe! I didn't have the bulk sausage or fresh basil so I subbed turkey smoked sausage and dried basil. Still so good and very flavorful! I added some hot sauce to the rice mixture as it cooked as well. Will def make again! I served with a small green salad and I am STUFFED! hahaha
