Pumpkin & Sausage Risotto Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients: 4 large yellow bell peppers 2 TB olive oil, divided 2 c cooked rice 1/2 c pumpkin puree 2 TB grated Parmesan cheese 2 TB grated Pecorino* cheese 2 TB butter 1/4 c milk 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp of each: ground sage, black pepper, garlic salt 6 full length Italian sausages, cooked, drained, and sliced Directions: Slice the peppers lengthwise, remove stem and seeds.  Spread 1 TB olive oil in a 9x13 glass baking dish.
