1.25 lb. ground turkey
1 tbsp. parsley
1 cup instant rice (I use brown rice)
1 tsp. basil
1 egg, beaten (optional)
1 tsp. thyme
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 tsp. oregano
1 lg. can tomato sauce (29 oz.)
1 tsp. garlic powder
4-5 medium-sized green peppers, halved
½ tsp. black pepper

Mix together rice, egg, onion, ½ cup tomato sauce, and spices.  Add ground turkey and mix well.  Fill pepper halves with mixture.  Place stuffed peppers into a casserole dish.  Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers.  Cover with lid or plastic wrap.  Microwave on high for 20 minutes until meat is no longer pink and peppers are tender.  Allow to stand 5 minutes before serving.
