Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

My outlook on eating is that nothing should be off limits; I simply like to manipulate a recipe into a more nutritious option, without sacrificing my craving.  With the football season in full swing (Go Giants!) I wanted to put my healthy mark on the tailgate favorite, Philly steak and cheese sandwich.  There really might not be anything as satisfying as melted cheese, caramelized veggies, and thinly sliced beef loaded into a soft bun, except maybe knowing it is possible to get those same flavors without having to sacrifice the high calories and fat.
