A Truly Italian Recipe: Spaghetti with Cruschi Peppers and Breadcrumbs from Basilicata. This recipe is made with the Cruschi Peppers, also called Peperoni Cruschi or Peperoni di Senise from the Basilicata, the Region they represent. The Peperoni di Senise are sun dried in the late summer and then fried to become Cruschi (which means crunchy). When they are fried, they are very good as a ready-to-eat snack, but also good to add a strong flavour to many dishes.
