And yes, they're hot.

For what it's worth, I think you mean crushed red pepper (sing.). Peppers
are, of course, the red or green, mild or hot, fruit used in salads, etc.
Pepper is the spice - seeds of the pepper plant.

And putting crushed red pepper on pasta is a peculiarly American habit --
never seen in Italy
