Everyone in my family has their own version of stuffed peppers. We like to make ours with ground turkey for a nice, healthful meal at lunch or dinner. This is a hybrid recipe of my late grandmother's and my mother's version. This is also a great dish to make for entertaining a group of dinner guests.
Fairytale Italian Stuffed Peppers
5 large green bell peppers
1 1/2 lb of lean ground beef (can substitute ground turkey)
1 1/2 cups of grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of chopped parsley
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
1 large egg
1 quart of tomato sauce
1 quart of marinara sauce
1 tablespoon of butter
Par-boil the stuffed peppers so that they get soft, but not so that they're too tender or falling apart.
In another pot, combine the sauces and heat on low.
