Stuffed Peppers

I needed to clean out my fridge today, so I decided to create my own version of stuffed peppers with what I had on hand. I think it worked out great! Here's what I used:

2 Green Peppers
1lb Ground Beef
1 Small Zucchini
1 Small Yellow Squash
1 Portabella Mushroom
A Chunk of Tofu
About 1 Serving of White Rice
1/4 Jar of Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce
Olive Oil

Brown and drain the ground beef, add chopped/diced zucchini, squash, and mushroom (I chopped them pretty small), and stir in pasta sauce. Cover and let the veggies cook for a few minutes before adding tofu (again, cut small), and rice.

Cut off tops of peppers and clean out seeds. Stuff with filling and place in a glass pan drizzled with olive oil. Bake at 350•F until green peppers have softened.

I ended up with enough filling to stuff 2-3 more peppers, but I think it's yummy by itself too.
