  1. Cut peppers in half lengthwise and remove ribs and seeds. Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Make the filling by mixing the sausage, cream cheese, cheddar and Parmesan together until well combined. Taste filling and add salt and/or pepper if needed.

If any of the pepper halves won't sit upright on the baking sheet, remove thin slices of pepper from their bottoms to make them stable.
