  Bell peppers 2 Pound, pounded (6 Medium, Red / Green Colored)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut tops from peppers and remove seeds and ribs, keeping peppers whole. Brush outside of peppers with 2 teaspoons olive oil.
2. In a medium frying pan, heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Crumble sausage meat into pan and cook, stirring to break up lumps, until it begins to lose its pink-ness, 5 to 7 minutes.
