  • Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Brown meat in skillet; drain. Meanwhile, bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add rice; cover. Simmer 5 min. Remove from heat; let stand 5 min.
  • Drain meat. Add to rice with zucchini and 1 cup each spaghetti sauce and cheese.
  • Place 1 pepper half in center of each of 6 large sheets of heavy-duty foil; fill with meat mixture. Top with remaining sauce and cheese. Bring up foil sides. Add 1 Tbsp. water to each packet. Double-fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.
  • Grill 20 to 25 min. or until filling is heated through and peppers are crisp-tender. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening each packet.

Substitute

Instead of grilling the filled peppers, heat oven to 375°F. Place filled pepper halves in 13x9-inch baking dish. Add 1/2 cup water to dish; cover. Bake 30 min. or until filling is heated through and peppers are crisp-tender.
