Tonight I took a recipe from one of my favourite meals, made a few alterations and “cleaned it up” a little.  It turned out to be quite yummy and got 2 thumbs up from everyone in the family! I hope you enjoy it as well! 🙂

1/2 White onion

1 Stalk celery finely chopped

2 Garlic cloves finely chopped

1 Cup marinara sauce

1 1/2 Cup cooked quinoa

1 Package lean ground turkey

1/2 Tsp italian seasoning 

1/4 Tsp black pepper 

4 Bell peppers

1/3 Cup goats mozzarella cheese

 

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.  Add onions, celery and minced garlic together and cook in frying pan until soft, then add italian seasoning and pepper.  Add turkey to frying pan and cook breaking it up with a wooden spoon.  Add quinoa and marinara sauce.  Cut peppers in half and remove seeds.  Fill pepper halves and sprinkle with cheese.  Bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Mmmmmmm so yummy!  I can’t wait to eat my leftovers for lunch tomorrow! 🙂
