1 lb Hot ground Italian Sausage; roasted and chopped fine
1/2 c Locatelli Romano cheese
1/2 c Bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lg Egg
Olive oil to saute
4 Banana peppers; (Hungarian hots or mild as preferred)
1 c Marinara sauce; heated for service
1 Wedge dry ricotta cheese

Mix sausage, cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper, and egg together in mixing bowl. Season to taste. Adjust mixture with additional cheese and bread crumbs if too dry or moist - medium moisture for stuffing desired.

Make a radial slice around the top of the banana pepper leaving the top intact. Pull back top and remove seeds if so desired. Gently stuff mixture into peppers. Place olive oil in hot saute pan. Gently place peppers in the pan and fry each side until browned. Place marinara sauce in middle of plate. Arrange peppers on top of marinara and grate the dry ricotto cheese on top of the hot peppers
