Turkey sausage and smoked cheese give a flavorful boost to this versatile, somewhat retro dinner. We've speeded it up by microwave-blanching the peppers and using instant brown rice. If possible, choose peppers that will stand upright.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
6   large bell peppers, tops cut off, seeded
12 ounces  hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
1 1/2 cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
4   plum tomatoes, chopped
2 cups  instant brown rice
1 cup  chopped fresh basil
1 cup  finely shredded smoked cheese, such as mozzarella, cheddar or Gouda, divided
Smoky Stuffed Peppers Recipe at
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

Place peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish. Fill the dish with 1/2 inch of water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the water and transfer the peppers to a roasting pan.

Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes and rice; increase heat to high and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the rice is softened but still moist, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the rice absorbs the remaining liquid, about 5 minutes.

Stir basil and half the cheese into the rice mixture. Divide the filling among the peppers, then top with the remaining cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Great Value and Nutrition
Enjoyed it but if you like to spice it up a bit; the hot turkey sausage didn't quite do it. You might want to add an ingredient to add some zip. Since the meat is removed from the casing probably easier to buy bulk sausage. I used smoked Gouda and it was perfect!
