Cheesy Couscous Stuffed Peppers

I decided to make these tonight as a side for a steak and while one whole stuffed pepper was quite a lot for one person, it was tasty. I think next time I will add a little Italian seasoning to the couscous to add a little bit of flavor.

I got this recipe here at Tasty Kitchen, which is a great site where people can go and share their recipes and see others. I really like it, and it is from the Pioneer Woman, who's recipes I also like making.

2. Boil Peppers in water for 5 minutes, Drain and set aside.

3. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and add onions and garlic. Saute 2-3 Minutes or until tender.
