Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

How long does it take to make this recipe?

From start to finish, Turkey Parmesan Stuffed Peppers will take approximately 30-35 minutes to make.

Fifteen minutes to partially roast and soften the peppers in the oven before stuffing, and 20 minutes to bake the peppers after stuffing.

*Note – For speedier preparation, the halved peppers (which have been ribbed and seeded) can be cooked in a microwave. Place the prepared peppers on a microwave-safe plate, cover with plastic wrap and cook them on medium/high power for 2-3 minutes until semi-soft, but not limp.

How many people does this recipe serve?

This recipe as written (and as far as the calorie count goes) serves four people with one half pepper for each person.

For feeding heartier appetites, this recipe will serve two people (with two half portions) for each person.

If feeding more people, it’s simple to double the recipe using 4 whole peppers, and two pounds of ground turkey meat, making 8 half peppers (for 8 people), or 4 whole peppers (for 4 people).

Can ground beef or ground chicken be substituted for the ground turkey?

Yes, easily.

Just be aware that the calorie count will be different than what is listed in the recipe card if making substitutions.

Can these Stuffed Peppers be topped with mozzarella cheese?

Sure thing!

Had I not been interested in keeping the calorie count low for this recipe, I certainly would have done it myself.

Just know that (if you’re counting calories) adding additional cheese will certainly increase the calorie count for this recipe.

Can these low-calorie stuffed peppers be frozen after cooking?

You bet!

Cool the stuffed peppers well after cooking, and then store them in an air-tight freezer container for up to 3 months.

How long will these stuffed peppers keep in the refrigerator?

You can store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

When it’s time to reheat, place them on a microwave safe plate, cover loosely, and heat for 1 – 2 minutes on medium/high power.

How to make low-calorie Turkey Parmesan Stuffed Peppers:

  • Preheat oven to 425-degrees.
  • Halve the bell peppers lengthwise, and remove the ribs and seeds.
  • Place the peppers in a casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Season the peppers liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Cover the dish with foil and roast in a 425-degree oven for 12 – 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and brown the ground turkey in a large skillet over medium/high heat.
  • Add chopped onion, minced garlic, garlic powder, dried basil, dried oregano, and tomato paste to the skillet.
  • Cook, stirring to combine, until the turkey meat is no longer pink.
  • Add 1 can tomato puree to the skillet, and stir well.
  • When the peppers come out of the oven, liberally spoon the turkey mixture into the waiting peppers, and top each with the grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Reduce the oven heat to 350-degrees and return the peppers to cook (uncovered) for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve hot.
