Another ridiculously easy dish that can be made in a flash with only a few ingredients necessary. Veggies for the soul made simple and yummy! They remind me of pizza bites but minus those pesky carbs.

I used a spoon to scoop out the flesh. We do this to avoid the skins from getting watery. I saved them in a tupper and used them in an omelette the next day. Simply saute the pieces in some olive oil and season them well.
