Grown in the Calabrian region of Italy and known as peperoncino, this pepper is fruitier and spicier than your typical red chili. An excellent way to add heat to meat or pasta. Calabrian pepper flakes are also excellent on pizza and antipasto. Remember, the peperoncino is hotter than typical chili flakes, so use according to your heat tolerance.
These Italian pepper flakes are great on any dish that requires some extra heat. I use on pasta and love it! They really flavor the dish. They are a little spicier than regular chili flakes, which I like.
