Half moon shaped egg pasta that is small in size and stuffed with any of a variety of ingredients. Initially made as a round circle that is folded over and sealed around the edges, Mezzaluna pasta may have fillings such as meat, cheese, fish, herbs, spinach greens, squash, or other similar foods and topped with a cream sauce. It is often combined with other ingredients that enhance the taste of the fillings, such as a recipe of herb stuffed Mezzaluna with sea scallops, providing a combination that goes well with rich and savory flavors.
