Peperone di Voghera

 The Voghera bell pepper is a fine native variety which merits special attention for its special flavours and aromas. It has a powerful aroma and tastes sweet and delicate as a result of its high sugar and low water content and is thus easy to digest. In the early 1950s a disease put it at risk and it was only in 2006 that Voghera bell pepper farming returned thanks to the work of a scientific council and partnership between academic bodies, agricultural institutes and Voghera area farmers. The Voghera bell pepper is a precious ingredient in the preparation of the sauces (bagnetti) which are eaten with boiled meats and is excellent in risottos and the famous peperonata, a tasty dish made of peppers cut into chunks.
