so delicious! I used about a cup of Aziano Chianti Classico from Ruffino, and added a generous pinch of hot pepper flakes & dried oregano & about 7 large, fresh roughly chopped basil leaves to the peppers while they cooked. I served on crunchy, crusty rolls that I filled & broiled on high with fresh mozerella slices- amazing!! tomorrow, I'll make marinara and add the leftovers & enjoy on pasta. YUM!!

This was incredibly easy and very tasty! The only additions I made was to add a bit of marinara sauce and some melted mozzarella on to the bun at the last minute. Everyone in the house loved it!
