  1. Use a paring knife to make a slit on one side of each roasted and peeled pepper -- do not cut through the entire pepper. Once the slit has been made, gently remove the seeds from the pepper, being careful to keep it intact. Place the peppers in a small enough baking dish, so that the peppers are close enough together that the sides hold each other up -- like a bowl. (If you happen to have small individual baking dishes, that fit the pepper with the sides resting along the edges, that's great, too.) Set the peppers aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and adjust a rack to the center.
  3. Add the sausage to a medium-sized sauté pan, break it up into very small pieces, and sauté over medium heat until it's cooked through, about 7 minutes.
  4. Then add the onion and continue to sauté until he onion begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. (There should be enough grease from the sausage for sautéing the onion, but if not, add a bit of olive oil.) Mix in the pesto and sun-dried tomatoes and stir to blend. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until they're well blended.
  6. Once the sausage mixture has cooled, mix it into the eggs, and using a measuring cup or ladle, add ¾ to 1 cup into each of the Poblano "bowls." (If a little seeps out, that's okay -- though if it seems to be more than a little, use crumpled foil to help hold the sides of the peppers up.)
  7. Sprinkle a bit of the cheese on top of each one, and bake in the preheated 375 degree F oven until the egg mixture is set in the middle, about 30 minutes.
  8. Let them cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
