Pecorino Romano is one of most widely used, sharper alternatives to Parmesan cheese. Because of the hard texture and sharp & salty flavour, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes. This Italian sheeps cheese is rather crumbly and flaky in texture and has a bold, pungent flavour. Even though Pecorino Romano works very well as an ingredient because it doesn't melt into strings when cooked, it is just as popular and tasty when eaten on its own. Pasteurised and not suitable for vegetarians.
