Mashed Butternut and Potato Stuffed Peppers

  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 large bell peppers
  • 1 large Russet potato (¾ pound), cut in ¾-inch cubes
  • ¾ pound butternut squash, cut in ¾-inch cubes
  • salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. Heat the oven to 375ºF. Cut the stems out of the top of the peppers. Slice in half lengthwise, and remove ribs and seeds. Pour the water into an 8×8 casserole dish. Place the peppers in the dish, cut side down. Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Drain off any remaining water.
  2. Meanwhile, place the potato and squash in a medium pot. Cover with water and salt generously. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes and squash are easily stabbed with a fork. Drain.
  3. Place the potato and squash in a large bowl. Mash. Stir in the garlic, sage, and olive oil until thoroughly incorporated. Spoon into the pepper halves. Return to the casserole dish and place in the oven. Roast 20 minutes. Serve.
