Pecorino Romano Grated
100% Sheeps milk Italian Pecorino Romano is one of most widely used, sharper alternatives to Parmesan cheeses. Because of the hard texture and sharp & salty flavor, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes, breads and baking casseroles. Pecorino Romano cheese is one of the oldest Italian cheeses, named for the city of Rome. In Italy, Romano is a Pecorino, made from sheep milk. Its flavor is so assertive that your tongue feels instantly hairy which is why it's best enjoyed with other foods. Conveniently pre-crumbled, Pecorino Romano's delicate texture is preserved as a key ingredient in many classic Italian preparations. It is an essential part of pesto; with tomato and bacon in amatriciana sauce or shaved over shell beans like favas. By itself a drizzle of honey is a delicious counterpoint to the cheese's natural spice, salt and sharpness. Pecorino Romano is made with animal (not vegetarian) rennet and is always gluten-free.
