Panzerotti 2.0: Now with MORE Panza!

Panzerotti, extra panza

Panzerotti, extra panza

Panzerotti loosely translates to broken bellies, or bellies that have been stuffed to the point of bursting; call it the southern Italian gut-buster, if you will. 

In the spirit of gut busting, I made the second iteration of Panzerotti with bigger, rounder bellies and stuffed them with eggplant, proscuitto crudo and mozzarella. Because in these dog days of summer, what more do any of us need then to loosen our belts a little! Bikini season is nearly over, time to celebrate!
