STUFFED PROVOLA ROLLS


This article is also available in: Italian

The smoked provola is a shortly aged cheese, stretched-curd, of southern origin and mainly prepared from cow’s milk (in some inland areas of Campania it is produced from buffalo milk).
There are many variations made with smoked provola cheese: ideal to enrich salads, first and second courses, excellent presented as a starter in skewers or in gratin recipes. Cut into thick slices and grilled, it can be served with bread, cold cuts and honey.
I personally love the stretched-curd that give a special touch to the course, turning a simple recipe into a super delicious and inviting dish. Stuffed provola rolls are a good example of this: slices of smoked provola cheese that contain a heart of cooked ham, herbs and walnuts … a unique delight!
