Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Fresh mozzarella is packed in liquid and is very mild and sweet tasting. Look for small, fresh, pearl-size mozzarella balls called Perline, but if unavailable, use any size fresh mozzarella and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Fresh mozzarella does not melt; instead it softens when heated. Regular mozzarella, cubed or shredded, can also be used in this recipe.
