I received this recipe through my CSA on the week we received fresh banana peppers. In my recipe the crushed red peppers were replaced with 2 diced jalapeno peppers. It also called for 2 slices of bacon to wrap the banana peppers. The recipe tasted very good - definitely worth the bacon calories! - 7/19/10
