Directions

1
These cute little peppers are great for this recipe, but any sweet pepper would work.
2
Place garlic, onion, turkey in soup pot with about 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Cook on low till almost done, add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and fresh diced tomatoes. Also add dry seasonings, sugar and lemon juice.Simmer 30-40 min. Taste and reseason if necessary. Add salt & pepper at this point.

NOTE: I like to put my fresh and canned tomatoes in the food processor and pulse them to remove some of the chunks.
3
NOTE: To reduce the fat and sodium, you can sub some or all of the ricotta with greek yogurt. Mix together ricotta, provolone and most of asaigo or parm and egg. (Reserve a little parm to garnish after cooking). Cut stems off of peppers and remove seeds. Stuff peppers.
4
Laddle a small amount of sauce in bottom of baking dish, lay peppers on top, then top with sauce. Bake 375° for about 35-45 min. till bubbly. Serve and garnish with grated asaigo or parm.
