stuffed peppers

my new favorite go-to, easy, healthy, fulfilling and delish recipe is stuffed peppers. 

begin by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
dice and cook a whole onion for about 5 minutes in a large saucepan with a smidge of oil.
 add 3-4 cloves of garlic and continue cooking a few more minutes.
next, i add one pound of ground turkey and cook thoroughly. sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste. 
i completely love the seeds of change indian simmer sauces and it tastes great in this recipe. add a jar of either the madras or the tikka masala (or really any kind of sauce you choose).
**for a little extra, you can add about 1/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese and melt it into the mix**

while the turkey + sauce mixture simmers (about 5 minutes), cut the tops off 4 bell peppers and clean the insides. 
with a spoon, pile the mixture evenly into the peppers. sprinkle the tops with grated parmesan for a wonderfully crunchy top.
place the peppers in an oven-safe baking dish (like this or this) and bake for ~25 minutes...until the peppers have softened and the tops looks crunchy and browned. 

have at 'em!
