Antipasto means "before the meal." Each ingredient is called an "antipasti." Provolone is usually packaged in half-moon shapes and found on the specialty cheese aisle. We prefer the taste and texture of provolone cheese labeled "sharp" (or "piquant") over low-sodium choices. We also like the mildly seasoned Genoa salami over smoky hard salami.
