Peperoni ripieni in Napoli, Member katiadin

My mother in law come from Napoli, exactly in Benevento's area. In the little villages , the backeries sell soft bread crumbs packed in plastick bags! They reuse the bread of the day before for make them! I assure you that the taste of the peppers is better!In Neapolitan dialect they say ""peperoni chieni""
