To reduce some of the juice in these spicy appetizers, I drain the pepperoncinis for about 3 hours on paper towel before stuffing. This recipe makes a big batch, which is perfect for parties.
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 medium tomato, cut into wedges
- 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
