Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients

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

Directions
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.
