1 lb hot ground Italian sausage, cooked
1/2 cup romano cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 large egg
banana peppers, at least 4
4 large tomatoes, 3 tablespoons butter, salt, pepper (or marinara sauce)
In a bowl mix together the cooked sausage, cheese, bread crumbs, and egg. Cut off the tops of the banana peppers. Remove as much seeds as you can. Stuff meat mixture into peppers.
Pan fry the peppers with olive oil in a skillet. Fry each side until browned.
If making own marinara sauce, dice tomatoes while cooking the ground sausage. Place tomatoes and butter in a sauce pot. Bring to a simmer and cook while the rest of the meal is being prepared. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve peppers with sauce poured on top. If desired, sprinkle extra cheese on it.
I clearly had extra filling left. I made meatballs out of it.
Too lazy to fix a serving platter, so poured sauce into pan and topped with cheese.
