The Italian Pantry: Red Pepper

A lot of Italian cookbooks mention spicy Italian food. I have to say that we do not eat our food too spicy. We certainly use crushed red pepper, but only for flavor not for real heat.

What is it used for? To flavor tomato sauce/gravy or soups like lentil soup or vegetable soup.
