22 large jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
Ranch salad dressing, optional
In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese; fold in sausage.
Spoon about 1 tablespoonful into each jalapeno half. Place in 2 ungreased 13x9-in. baking dishes. Bake, uncovered, at 425° until filling is lightly browned and bubbly, 15-20 minutes. Serve with ranch dressing if desired.
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
