Next, brown the turkey in a saute pan. While that is browning, combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, sauce, italian seasoning, salt, pepper and cooked quinoa. Once the turkey is browned, stir into rest of filling ingredients.

Divide mixture among peppers. Add water to the bottom of the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake the peppers at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
