Italian Stuffed Peppers

I found this recipe on Pinterest.  I just love that site.  The original recipe is from Skinny Taste and of course I doctored it up a bit, but we all really loved it and it's very healthful.

Italian Stuffed Peppers
adapted from Skinny Taste

1 lb lean chopped turkey meat

3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 onion, minced
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
salt & pepper to taste
3 large sweet red bell peppers, washed
1 1/4 c. marinara sauce
1 1/2 c. cooked rice
Cooking spray
1/2 c. chicken broth

1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 400.  Spray a 9x13'' pan with cooking spray.  Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with a healthy amount of cooking spray.  Add in turkey and onion.  Season with salt and pepper and cook until turkey is cooked through.  Drain off any fat. Add in garlic and cook a minute, until fragrant.  Stir in marinara sauce and rice, remove from heat.  Slice peppers in half lengthwise, remove stems and seeds.  Stuff pepper halves to heaping with rice mixture.  Place the pepper halves in the pan, pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the pan and sprinkle mozzarella on the top of each pepper.  Cover the pan tightly with foil.  Bake 35 minutes.  Enjoy!
