Not all stuffed peppers have ground beef and tomato sauce. Ground turkey and a white sauce give this variation wonderful down-home flavor and appeal. Julie Grose from Lompoc, California shares this recipe.

In a large saucepan, cook peppers in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water; set aside.
In a skillet, cook the turkey, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Return turkey mixture to skillet. Stir in tomato and 2 tablespoons cheese; heat through. Spoon into peppers; sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Place in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until peppers are tender and filling is hot.
