CousCous Stuffed Peppers

I had some leftover couscous to use up last night and decided to make these stuffed peppers. These were really good!

Ingredients

* 1 orange bell pepper, cut in half with core and seeds removed
* Appx 3/4 cup cooked couscous (I used parmesan flavor)
* Chopped onions
* Minced garlic
* Parsley (I used dried)
* EVOO

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
2. Place the pepper halves cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Roast ~15 minutes in the oven, or until tender and skin starts to brown on edges.
3. While the peppers are roasting, heat EVOO in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions, garlic, and parsley in oil for 2-3 minutes.
4. Spoon in the cooked couscous and stir until heated through. Remove from heat.
5. Remove peppers from oven and spoon in the couscous mixture into pepper halves.
6. Stick back in oven for ~5 minutes. Serve immediately (with side of sour cream if desired).
