Add the ground turkey, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and cook for about 12 minutes, or until well done. (Make sure you break meat apart, you don’t want to have big chunks) Add ¼ low sodium chicken broth and cilantro and mix well. Let is simmer for about 5-6 minutes.

When food is simmering, cut the bell peppers lengthwise and clean the inside. Place bell peppers in baking dish and spoon in turkey mixture into each pepper half. (If your peppers are small then you will have turkey mixture left over) Pour the remaining ½ cup of chick broth in baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil. Sprinkle cheese and bake for another 3 minutes.
