Cous Cous and Squash Stuffed Bell Peppers

Light, fluffy couscous is tossed with a whole lot of veggies (this is a great opportunity to clear out the veggie bin in your fridge!), then scooped into peppers and baked.  I think one of the greatest things about this dish is that it reheats really well, so if it is just the two of you, you automatically cook two dinners instead of one.
