Stuffed Baby Peppers

This is a new recipe I tried the other night.  They came out good.  Somewhat healthy.  So I thought I'd pass this along!

6 slices of bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup frozen petite peas, thawed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
24- 3 inch long sweet baby peppers
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a frying pan cook the bacon.  Remove bacon to let it cool and crumble it.  Add chopped onion to the leftover bacon grease in the pan.  Saute onion till translucent and soft (5 mins) Set aside and cool for 10 mins.
Using a paring knife cut off stems and hollow out peppers.  Remove seeds and veins.
In a medium bowl combine onion, bacon, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, peas, salt and pepper.  Stir gently together.  Fill each pepper with ricotta cheese mixture.  Place filled peppers on baking sheet.  Bake for 15-18 mins.  Remove and cool for 5 mins. before eating.
