If you’re not sure what to make for dinner tonight, this stuffed peppers recipe might be exactly what you’re looking for.
It’s one of my favorite dishes, mostly because it’s both delicious and easy to make. And by “easy to make”, I really mean it’s very forgiving. Even for a novice chef, stuffed peppers are pretty hard to mess up. Which was great when I was first learning how to cook.
For this stuffed peppers recipe, you can really stuff in any veggies you’d like (or have leftover from last night’s dinner).
I happen to love mushrooms because of the flavor they give to this dish. If you’re not a mushroom fan, my other suggestions – which I have previously tried and liked – are chopped carrots, jalapeños, butternut squash, celery, or black beans. Feel free to experiment a little bit here, you might find a combination you never expected to like.
Another substitute you may be interested in, depending on what you have on hand, would be ground beef instead of turkey. Turkey is a leaner choice, which is why I went for it in this recipe. I also prefer they flavor of turkey over beef, but to each his or her own.
As far as the marinara sauce goes, you could use marinara sauce from a jar.
