From Martha Stewart’s Food Every Day

1/2 lb Italian sausage (or chicken or turkey sausage)
1 zucchini diced
1 med yellow onion diced
2-3 garlic cloves minced
1/4 c parm (I subbed cream cheese with salt because i didn’t have any on hand)
2 c rice cooked (or quinoa)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
4 large bell peppers

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, start cooking the rice.

Cook sausage and set aside. In the Sam pan with the grease cook the onions, zucchini and garlic. Put in the same bowl and mix with the parm and rice. Stuffing done!

Separately mix the breadcrumbs with 1/2 t oil to top the peppers when stuffed.

Brush a rimmed baking sheet with oil. Stuff peppers and top with breadcrumbs and bake for about 30 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are browned and peppers are tender.
