  3. Add 2 Tbsp oil to skillet and heat on medium-high heat. Lower heat to medium when oil is hot. Add onion and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes. Add squash; cook 1 minute more. Mix in cooked quinoa and herbs, and season to taste. Set aside.
  4. Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. Fill Peppers with quinoa filling and top with Parmesan cheese; roast in oven for 10 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.

Chef likes to serve this as a side with fish, or as a vegetarian entrée with sides of grilled asparagus and wilted chard with basil pesto.
