One of my favorite dinners-I love these stuffed peppers! Super easy to make and they taste amazing. I make these with brown rice so they're a little more healthy, too. 

 Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers
-5 bell peppers (any color) cleaned, deseeded & tops removed
-1 med. zucchini chopped
-1/2 small onion chopped
-1/2 pack of fresh sliced mushrooms
-2 table spoons freshly chopped garlic
-2 table spoons Italian seasoning
-olive oil
-2 "Minute Ready" brown rice cups
-Parmesan Cheese
-1 sheet of tin foil
-1 small jar GOOD pasta sauce

If you don't want to use jarred sauce-use your own or here is a recipe for a quick one:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

1. Arrange peppers in an oven safe dish that's been lightly drizzled with olive oil. Cover with tin foil and bake for 15 min.-Remove from the oven and set aside.
2. In a medium size skillet-heat about 2 tablespoons olive oil on LOW heat. Add the garlic-cook about 5 minutes.
3. Turn the heat up to MEDIUM-HIGH. Add the zucchini, onion and mushrooms along with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook till tender. About 7 minutes.
4. Cook your minute ready cups in to the microwave as directed. In the mean time, add pasta sauce to the skillet. Sir over medium heat for 2 minutes.
5. Turn the heat down to a simmer. Once the rice is done cooking-add it.
6.Stuff the peppers with the skillet mixture. Sprinkle with parm cheese and bake for 15 minutes.  Serve.
