Bought some banana peppers for chili and had a few left over, so I added some hot Italian sausage and had a feast!
All you need are 4 banana peppers, 1/2 pound of hot Italian sausage, about 1 cup of marinara and some shredded parmesan.
Cut the top of the pepper off and hollow out the inside. Dived the sausage into quarters and stuff each quarter into a pepper. Place on a baking sheet and smoke at the lowest setting on your grill (about 165F) for about 2 hours. Heat the marinara to low simmer.
Move to direct heat on a BBQ grill and finish for about 8 minutes, flipping after 4 minutes. Move the sausage to a serving tray, cover in marinara, and sprinkle on cheese. Serve hot.
