Provolone Cheese

Is an Italian cheese, similar to pasta filata or stretched curd cheeses. In these stringy-textured cheeses, the curd is cooked to a relatively high temperature and is pulled and molded while hot into various shapes. The name provolone is derived from the Neapolitan word “prova,” meaning ball-shaped.
