    • non-stick cooking spray
    • 1 small onion, minced
    • 1/4 c. chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
    • 1 large egg
    • 3 tbsp ketchup
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
    • 3/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/3 c. grated Romano, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1/4 c. dried panko bread crumbs
    • 1 lb. sausages, casings removed (I used spicy or mild mixed with chili peppers and about 2 tsp of adobo sauce)
    • 4 bell peppers
    • 1 1/2 c. tomato sauce


    1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Generously spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.
    2. 2. Mix together the onion, parsley, egg, ketchup, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in 1/3 c. cheese and the bread crumbs then mix in the sausage.
    3. 3. Cut the tops off the peppers and use a spoon to scrape out the ribs and seeds. Stuff the peppers with the turkey mixture and place upright in the baking dish. Spoon the marinara sauce over the stuffed vegetables.
    4. 4. Bake uncovered until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown and a thermometer inserted into the filling registers 165 degrees F, about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with additional cheese. Return to the oven for five minutes.
    5. 5. To serve, let peppers rest three minutes, then transfer to a platter and serve with additional sauce.
