Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the tops off of the peppers, removed the ribs and seeds, and then dice the tops of the peppers.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Add the chopped bell peppers, and saute until soft, about five minutes.
Add the Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey, and break up as you cook it. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, and dried basil. Cook until the meat is no longer pink. Remove the skillet from heat.
