Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers

My husband is trying a low carb diet so I hunted up recipes that would work... not a lot of luck, so I combined and reworked a couple of recipes and this is what I came up with. Everyone that has had them raves about them... even my picky kids. It is a sure fire way to get a few veggies into little ones lol. You may add any veggie you like and vary the amounts this is an easy dinner that tastes great.

Ingredients

2 lb
97% lean ground sirloin or ground turkey
1 1/2-2 c
cut zucchini
1 c
shredded carrots
1 lb
fresh spinach
1 jar(s)
sliced mushrooms drained
1 can(s)
petite diced tomatoes drained
1 medium
onion
2-3 clove
minced garlic
6 large
bell peppers
1-2 tsp
italian seasoning
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
onion powder
1/4-1 c
shredded mozzarella (to taste if desired)
1/4-3/4 c
freshly shredded parmesan (to taste if desired)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat oven 350. Cut tops off of the bell peppers reserve for filling remove seeds and invert in a baking dish, cover in foil and bake for 10-15 minutes.
2
Brown your meat, and finely dice remaining bell pepper pieces and onions while meat is cooking. Add bell peppers, onions and garlic while meat finishes browning.
3
Once your mixture is completely brown add shredded carrots, mushrooms and tomatoes. Stir and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
4
Add zucchini, and spinach and simmer until tender.
5
Add 1/4 cup each of parmesan and mozzarella cheese and simmer for 5 minutes.
6
Turn inverted peppers over and fill with meat mixture. cover with mozzarella cheese as desired. Bake in oven until cheese is melted and golden.
7
You may also serve the meat mixture over rice. I make four or 6 peppers depending on how many, there is always mixture left over. I don't really care for the large peppers so I serve the meat mixture over rice (not low carb).
8
Serve peppers use remaining parmesan cheese as desired.
