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.
Shredded mozzarella cheese is commonly used to add flavor and texture to a variety of dishes. Popular uses include pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads and other melted cheese based recipes. It can also be used as a topping on casseroles, or added to a variety of Mexican dishes including enchiladas, quesadillas and burritos.
The benefits of Mozzarella include being high in calcium and protein while also providing essential vitamins and minerals.
