  1. Core and seed the peppers and cut in half lengthwise. Pre-cook in microwave about 4 minutes.
  2. Bring chicken broth to boil and add dry couscous.
  3. Stir in ranch mix. Toss in pre-cooked thinly sliced, chicken sausage.
  4. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring to keep from sticking. Simmer on about med/low.
  5. When most of the water has been absorbed, lay peppers on baking tray and spoon couscous and sausages into the peppers.
  6. Bake at 400 about 20 minutes.
  7. Add a light sprinkle of cheddar cheese if you'd like, or a dollop of fresh sour cream.
  8. Notes: The couscous is uncooked. The chicken sausage I used was 110 calories and very low fat. When calculated out, I got 212 calories per serving.
