Ingredients:  
6 Bell Peppers
Olive oil
1 pound ground beef (or equivalent chicken or pork/beef blend)
Kosher salt
Black pepper
1 onion, finely diced
1 medium zucchini, finely diced
4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
1 cup cooked long-grain or wild rice
1 1/2 cups grated italian 5 cheese blend (or equivalent)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350

Cut the tops off the peppers. Remove and discard the stems, then finely chop the tops; set aside.
Scoop out the seeds and as much of the membrane as you can. Place the peppers cut-side up in a baking dish just large enough to hold them upright.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook, breaking up the lumps, until the meat is cooked through and just beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to get rid of the fat.

Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the onions and chopped peppers and cook until beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the *garlic and zucchini and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes and season with salt.

Cook until everything is heated through, then stir in the beef and rice. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Stir in 1 cup of the cheese.

Fill the peppers with the rice mixture and top each with a sprinkle of the remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
Pour a small amount of water into the bottom of the baking dish and drizzle the peppers with a little olive oil. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Uncover and bake until the peppers are soft and the cheese is melted and lightly browned, another 15 to 20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
As always make this whatever you want. The dealio here is the green pepper which adds flavor to the mixture as well. You could make a Mexican variation of this with those spices and onion, or more full-on Italian with basil, Italian parsley, etc.
