Italian Poppers

6 large pepperoncini peppers split in half and seeded
1 cup ricotta cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp basil pesto or sun dried tomato pesto (I recommend the tomato, available at Aldi's)
1/2 cup mozzarella
1/4 cup Parmesan
2 Tbsp. Roasted red pepper diced fine
1 egg yolk
12 basil leaves
12 razor thin slices of prosciutto

Mix the cheeses, egg, pepper and pesto and egg and stuff into the peppers. Place the peppers on a baking dish and bake at 350 for 10 minutes Then set the oven to broil and cook till the cheese is browning and bubbly. Let the peppers cool slightly. Place a basil leaf on top and wrap with the prosciutto. And pop that baby in yer mouth. yum!
