Mozzarella en Carrozza: A visit to Italy

We may earn money from the companies or products mentioned in this post.

I had all intentions of revamping, and getting better pictures of my Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip, but the more I researched Italian Cuisine, the more I wanted to try something new. Of course, I’ll still be heading back to that dip, because it is divine, but today I decided to go with something new. 
Mozzarella en Carrozza. 

Basically a cheese sandwich. I know it doesn’t sound all that new, but trust me it is!  I found the recipe first on Mangia Bene Pasta.  I really enjoyed browsing her recipes, and learning a little more about traditional Italian food. I kept coming back to the Mozzarella en Carrozza though, because my parents recently told me about this new Gourmet Cheese Sandwich shop that they visited.

Normally my cheese sandwiches consist of buttered bread and Cheddar cheese, sometimes a slice of ham.  This sandwich is so much more though! It’s just as easy to make, giving you a new lunch option.

You can eat the Mozzarella en Carrozza by itself, but I enjoyed mine dipped in Hunts Italian Sausage sauce. It was like a pizza, but in sandwich form. So delicious!

  2. There's not much better than a crusty bread, pan fried, and it includes cheese. This looks delicious and so hearty. I love this idea for a link party especially since I like to travel so much. #sitsblogging

  5. This is perfect timing! We're stuck at home due to this "historic" ice storm, and I actually have bread and mozzarella on hand. My kid LOVES cheese, and this actually sounds like something I'd enjoy as well. Better than the plain boring grilled cheese. #SITSblogging
