What is bocconcini? I never heard of it. and where can I find it to make this recipe?

thanks in advance

Hi there ohiojude.

Bocconcini are small balls of fresh mozzarella. Your local grocer should be able to assist you with this. It’s packed in liquid in margarine-like sized containers. Where I live, the label name is STELLA. You might find Bocconcini in the Deli section with the Deli or specialty cheeses. Good luck with your Bocconcini search.
