1 large zucchini, coarsely grated
1 lb extra lean ground turkey
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup fresh parsley, minced
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1 large egg
2 cups tomato sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
4 medium halved red bell peppers
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Brown turkey and onions; drain. Combine turkey mixture and all ingredients but bell peppers in large bowl until well blended.
2. Fill pepper halves with turkey mixture, dividing equally and mounding slightly. Arrange in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Bake uncovered until tops are browned, about one hour. Transfer peppers to platter and garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs.
***Peppers can be made a day ahead and refrigerated. Cool turkey mixture before combining if not cooking right away.
