Colorful Cheese Stuffed Peppers

6 medium red and/or yellow peppers
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup minced onion
1/3 cup minced green bell pepper
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup grated raw zucchini
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
freshly ground pepper

Slice the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds. Lightly brush the peppers inside and outside with the olive oil and place in a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes until the peppers are slightly softened.

Heat the wine in a skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, stir well to coat with the liquid and cook for 5 minutes. Add green pepper, garlic and oregano and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the green papper is bright in color. Remove from heat.

In a mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, ricotta, and parmesan cheeses. Add the onion mixture and pepper to taste.

Fill peppers with mixture and return to the oven. Bake 30 minutes or until the filling is lightly browned and bubbly.
