4-Large green peppers or red peppers, seeded, cored and sliced in half lengthwise
2 Tbsp- Olive oil

1tsp- Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste
1-(14 ½ ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1-(8 oz) can tomato sauce (look at the carbs & sugar)-> NO SUGAR
Feta cheese as a topping but only 1oz per serving on phase 1&2 remember the feta cheese is your 1oz of daily allowance of dairy!

Preparation
On stovetop in a medium skillet or saucepan, sautee mushrooms, onion, celery and garlic in olive oil until veggies are soft; remove from heat.

Meanwhile, in a medium-mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, egg, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper

Add sautee veggies mixture to turkey mixture; mix well

Stuff peppers with turkey/veggie mix and place in an ungreased shallow casserole dish

In a small bowl combine undrained tomatoes and tomato sauce; pour over peppers to cover

Sprinkle with feta cheese and Italian seasonings; cover with aluminum foil and bake for 50 minutes.

Uncover, sprinkle with feta and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and browned

Just remember this treat is a twice a week meal!
