Mozzarella: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

For a quick, light meal, fresh mozzarella can be served simply with fresh bread and wine. Sliced and alternated with fresh tomato slices and olives, and garnished with basil and pepper, fresh mozzarella can also become part of an antipasto salad.

In cooked dishes, such as eggplant parmigiana and tomato casseroles; with pasta or in lasagna; with veal or chicken; and in grilled foods and of course on pizza, mozzarella is one of the most popular cheeses in the United States.
