BelGioioso Mascarpone

BelGioioso MascarponeBelGioioso Mascarpone is versatile, indulgent, and so easy to use.
Mascarpone is an ivory-colored, exceptionally smooth, and easily spreadable fresh cream cheese. The flavor is milky and slightly sweet. The rich, buttery texture comes from the high butterfat content. It is best known as a key ingredient in tiramisu, it adds rich texture to savory dishes, and is delicious in desserts. There are so many ways you can incorporate Mascarpone into your everyday cooking.

Add mascarpone to pasta sauce or use it in place of cream in nearly any dish. It can also be used to thicken soups, stuff chicken breasts, and as a spread on pancakes, toast, or sandwiches. It is great on pasta and pizzas. Dollop it on roasted vegetables or mix it into your scrambled eggs. For an easy dip, whisk fresh herbs, salt, and garlic into the mascarpone. For dessert, enjoy a big spoonful of mascarpone with a sprinkle of cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, or a drizzle of honey on top. Serve it with fresh berries, fruit, or cookies.

Mascarpone originated in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy during the Renaissance. And, in 1990, BelGioioso became the first American company to produce this fresh Italian specialty cheese in the United States. They craft this naturally sweet, yet surprisingly light cheese is produced from only the freshest cream.
