What are arrabbiata bocconcini ?

The word Bocconcini is usually used for small mozzarellas·, Italian cheese balls about the size of cherry tomatoes while in fact, it refers to the size: “bocca” means mouth and  bocconcini is bite size . It’s actually a convenient cut for parties.

Arrabbiata is a well-known pasta sauce but whenever we use peperoncino it can be arrabbiata as it means angry and a really angry person is red in face like when eating a  strong peperoncino.
