In medium size skillet brown meatballs, then finish cooking them through in a 350 pre-heated oven. Once meatballs are finished, place on paper towels to absorb excess grease. Set aside. Remove prosciutto panino from package and chop in 1/2" pieces. Set aside. Dice onions and peppers and set aside. Take a pair of clean kitchen shears and cut off 1/4"along the edge of pita bread.
Open the pita pocket and stuff with meat, veggies, cheese and marinara sauce. For best results bake using a 9-10" cake pan turned upside down and placed in the center of a cookie sheet. Arrange stuffed pitas around upside down cake pan so they are standing up. Place in a 350 degree pre-heated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley and sever with marinara sauce.
Note: You can leave meatballs whole, cut them in half or quarter them depending on your preference. Quartering the meatballs allow for a greater distribution within the pita pocket.
