Peperoni quagliettani

Peperoni quagliettani is a traditional dish from the Campania region of Italy, specifically found in the towns of Quaglietta and surrounding communes. This dish is made with a specific type of sweet pepper called “peperone quagliettano,” which is grown in the area and is known for its unique flavor and sweetness. The peppers are typically roasted and then marinated in olive oil, garlic, and herbs, giving them a rich and savory taste.

One popular recipe for peperoni quagliettani involves roasting the peppers until they are charred and then peeling off the skin. The peppers are then cut into strips and marinated in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, parsley, and vinegar. Another recipe involves stuffing the peppers with a mixture of breadcrumbs, cheese, and herbs before roasting them in the oven.

Peperoni quagliettani has been recognized with a Protected Designation of Origin (DOP) by the European Union, which specifies that the dish must be made with peppers grown in the designated area and prepared according to traditional methods. This recognition helps to preserve the authenticity and quality of the dish.
