This is one of my favorite snacks and I'm making it this afternoon so thought I would share. If you cook them good, they actually aren't "that" hot, but if you don't like hot things, I probably would stay away from this!
P.s. I skip the red onions, yuck. And I do prefer the red jalapenos, but can't find those in the store so I just use green when I'm not growing them myself. Didn't grow them this year. I also use hot or spicy Italian sausage and grill them instead of putting them in the oven.
• 15 jalapenos, preferably red, cut in 1/2, seeded and deveined
• 1 tablespoon canola oil
• 2 pounds mild Italian sausage, casings removed
• 1/4 cup minced red onion
• 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
• 3 tablespoons minced garlic
• 2 cups mascarpone or cream cheese
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
• Salt and pepper
• 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and set a rack in the middle of the oven.
Place jalapenos on a sheet tray and roast for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Turn broiler on medium.
Heat the oil in a medium saute pan. Add the sausage and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic and cook to soften for about 5 minutes. Remove and place in a large bowl. Cool to room temperature, then add mascarpone, and Parmesan. Mix ingredients thoroughly and season with salt and pepper.
Place approximately 1 tablespoon of mixture into each jalapeno half, and top with 1/2 teaspoon of mozzarella cheese.
Place the sheet tray of stuffed peppers in oven and broil until mozzarella cheese melts.
