  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Place a skillet over medium-high heat; add sausage and cook until brown; drain and return pan to heat. Stir the cream cheese into the sausage and cook until completely melted; remove from heat.
  3. Spoon equal portions of the sausage mixture into the jalapeno halves and arrange onto the prepared baking sheet; sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the stuffed peppers.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are soft and the tops are lightly browned, about 30 minutes.

Okay, but not so great. Too much sausage and not enough cheese. I don't think that changing the ratios would help. I chopped up the leftovers and used them to spice up some enchiladas.
