How I would prepare the pan-fried friggitelli with the quick recipe.

  1. First wash the peppers under running water then dry them with kitchen paper. There is no need to remove the seeds because, as mentioned, they are almost completely absent.
  2. In a pan, heat the oil with the garlic, then add the peppers and about half a glass of water. Leave to cook with the lid on over medium heat for about 20 minutes, adding salt at the end. If desired, a grind of black pepper also helps to enhance the flavour.

This quick and easy recipe with friggitelli is just one of the many you can prepare. For example, try our stuffed friggitelli , excellent both as an appetizer and as a second course.


Once cooked, the friggitelli can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days in an airtight container.
