    Did not know what to make for dinner and this was exactly what I had in mind: not too many ingredients, not too complicated and delicious. Almost as my mom's 😄

    De-lish!! So great, we’ve made it twice during quarantine! It’s become a favorite that the FamBam asks for! Turkey meat is healthier, and honestly it tastes better than ground beef. The only thing I do differently is while the oven is preheating, I get the bell peppers in the dish (water in the bottom of the dish) and in the oven while I’m diving everything up and cooking the meat. It makes the outer bell pepper softer and easier to eat. Otherwise, it’s still not 100% done if I follow the directions to a T. Bon appétit!!

    It was good but didn't have a lot of flavor that might be me though.

    It's better if you put the peppers in the oven already while making the meat and vegetables so that they get softer.

    Good! Struggling a bit with the right amount of water for the dish, but it turned out fine. I also added cheese at the bottom of the peppers... deliciousness!
