Provola Ragusana is a semi-hard stretched curd cheese typical of the dairy tradition of Ragusa. The shape is pear. The crust, thin, smooth, with a marked straw-yellow color on the surface, may show the presence of slight inlets due to the ties. The paste is homogeneous or with very slight holes, white or straw yellow in color. The flavor is initially sweet until it becomes spicy with advanced maturation. It can be consumed as a table cheese or used in the kitchen, for example to flavor pasta dishes, salads, pizzas and watercresses, bruschetta or rolls.
