  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey; saute until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add tomatoes, onion, and garlic. Add couscous flavor packet and cumin; season with salt and pepper. Add couscous; stir and cover. Reduce heat and simmer until couscous is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce together in a bowl. Season sauce with salt and pepper.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green bell peppers, red bell peppers, and yellow bell peppers. Cook uncovered until slightly tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain; shake to dry. Sprinkle salt and pepper inside peppers.

  • Place a small amount of feta cheese in the bottom of each bell pepper. Fill each pepper halfway with the turkey-couscous mixture; add more feta and fill to the top with more couscous. Cover top with more feta; spoon sauce on top. Place peppers in an oven-proof baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are browned, about 20 minutes.

An excellent alternative to rice! My husband loved this dish. Due to food allergies I could not use the prepared couscous so instead I used 2 teaspoons homemade Italian Seasoning and 4 servings pearled Israel couscous cooked according to the package instructions. The recipe does not say what to do with the sauce so I mixed some into the turkey-couscous mixture and spread some onto the bottom of the serving plate. This dish would be amazing as a one pot wonder; after the meet is browned sauté diced peppers along with the onion then add in the couscous and sauce. Which is exactly what I am going to do next time. Read More
