Peter Paniccia’s Stir Fried Hot Peppers w/ Bread Crumbs

I can’t stop raving about my favorite organic CSA farmer Peter Paniccia of Pietro’s Coop and his hot peppers. This past year, he showed me a really great way to cook these peppers.

It was so yummy that I pretty much ate the whole pan of peppers myself – don’t ask what happened to my stomach the next day! Next time I will show some restraint (or maybe not)
