      Add the cooked quinoa to the meat mixture. Stir thoroughly.

      Fill each pepper with the mixture. Cook in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
    10. 10
      After 25 minutes, top each pepper with italian cheese. Cook five more minutes (cheese will melt and begin to brown).

      Serve immediately :) Enjoy!

      Delicious and simple! Used Italian turkey sausage to add a little heat. Will definitely be making this again and again.

      The filling turned out AWESOME. <br/>I did add some lean ground italian sausage for extra flavor. <br/>I would suggest parboiling and even possibly peeling the peppers to soften them a little.
