CASU MARZU. “Maggota” seems to be a popular name for casu marzu, as it is described in this wikipedia article. Casu marzu is derived from Pecorino and is referred to colloquially as “maggot cheese.” A typical casu marzu contains thousands of tiny white maggots. The worms can launch themselves 6 inches if they are disturbed. Casu marzu is considered to be toxic when the maggots are dead, so it is only eaten with living maggots.
