When we were kids growing up in Italy we would enjoy this dish as a snack. Our appetites never seemed to lessen in those days and our afternoon snack, despite huge lunches and enormous dinners, was vital to survival! It is quite a heavy dish, given that it is deep-fried bread and cheese, so it needs to be served either on its own or with very light components to make up a meal. The name means that the mozzarella is in a golden carriage, like Cinderella!
tomato sauce (optional)
