4 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed pepper and 1/3 cup sauce)

This recipe conveniently uses the microwave to cook the peppers and heat the sauce, a blend of puréed canned chickpeas and commercial pasta sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 1 cup pasta sauce, turkey, and next 8 ingredients (turkey through garlic) in a bowl. Cut the tops off the bell peppers; reserve tops. Discard the seeds and membranes.

Step 2

Divide turkey mixture evenly among peppers; cover with reserved tops. Place the peppers in an 8-inch square baking dish. Microwave on HIGH for 14 minutes or until tender.

Step 3

While the peppers are cooking, drain the chickpeas in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2/3 cup chickpeas and 1/4 cup chickpea liquid. Reserve the remaining chickpeas for another use. Place 1 cup pasta sauce, 2/3 cup chickpeas, 1/4 cup chickpea liquid, and olive oil in a blender or food processor; process until well-blended. Place chickpea mixture in a 2-cup glass measure. Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring after 1 minute. Serve the stuffed bell peppers with sauce.
