Mozzarella is an Italian cheese made from cow’s milk that has been stretched into long strands before being cut into small pieces called “bocconcini” (Italian for “little mouthfuls”). It has a mild flavour with hints of sweetness that make it perfect for pizza toppings or melted over dishes like lasagna or eggplant parmesan.
Diced mozzarella cheese is popularly used for a variety of dishes including salads, pizzas, pastas and casseroles. It can be used as a topping or an ingredient and provides a mild, creamy flavour with a soft texture. Mozzarella cheese can also be melted in dishes like lasagna or stuffed shells. Additionally, diced mozzarella can be sprinkled over any baked dish such as potatoes or cooked vegetables to provide an extra cheesy flavour.
The benefits of Mozzarella include being high in calcium and protein while also providing essential vitamins and minerals.
