Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Prepare quinoa according to package

and stored in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator.)

Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions,
celery, carrots, garlic, oregano and basil. Cook while stirring frequently
for 3-5 minutes until vegetables begin to soften. Add the quinoa and
continue to cook, stirring frequently until all ingredients are combined
and heated through, about 2 minutes. Mix in the pepitas and season with
salt and cayenne.

just enough water to the pan to cover the bottom, and cover the pan loosely
with aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven 35-40 minutes or until
peppers are tender. Top with marinara sauce and serve one red and one green
pepper half to each person. EACH 257 cals, 7g fat (22% cff)
