Taking its name from the Italian for "egg size", Trader Joe's Ovoline Fresh Mozzarella is indeed about the size of a (very large) egg, a great size for slicing into rounds, which in turn are an excellent size for laying atop tomato sauce, or pairing with fresh tomatoes, on, say, a pizza.
Ovoline Fresh Mozzarella is soft and delicate, with luscious, milky flavor. When sliced into rounds, it melts beautifully, making an impression both visually and gastronomically. Of course, it's not just for pizza. Cut it into cubes and toss into a salad, layer it in a lasagna, or combine slices with fresh tomatoes and Spanish Organic Extra Virgin Garlic Flavored Olive Oil for a classic Caprese salad. We're selling Ovoline Fresh Mozzarella packed in water in an eight ounce tub (two four ounce balls) for $3.49, a cheesy value, every day.
