Stuffed Red Peppers

We had too many colored bell peppers so I searched around for something new to do with them. I found some recipes that stuffed them like green bell peppers (marinara, meat, cheese...) but I wanted something different so as usual, I mashed some ideas together. This is what I ended up with.  It's hard to write down a recipe that is not really measured, so much depends on the size of the peppers...but I have done my best with the ballpark amounts.

Slice 2 peppers (any color, I would just never use green) from stem to bottom and remove seeds
Place peppers face up in 1 cm of water in a covered microwave/oven safe dish, cook for five minutes.

Sauté
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 Tb unsalted butter
1 Tb olive oil
1 t garlic, minced
until softened, then add
1/2 c cooked pumpkin, cubed or mashed ( I think any squash would work)
(if you don't have cooked, just steam some before adding to the pan)
salt and pepper to your taste and remove from heat.
Mix in about 1/2 c of cottage cheese
Next, scoop …
