Pecorino RomanoPecorino Romano is a hard cheese with a name essentially meaning "Roman sheep's milk cheese." Produced since the ancient Roman times, today it is made following very much the same traditional techniques as have been used for centuries. Dry-salted by hand, the cheese is aged for 8-12 months, giving it a sharp, salty flavor, crumbly consistency and light straw color. As a result, it's well suited for grating and melting onto pastas, pizzas, breads and other dishes, making it an excellent substitute for Parmigiano-Regiano or Parmesan. It should not be confused with the milder-tasting Pecorino Toscano, which is another Italian sheep's milk cheese more often used for cheese plates, snacking or grilling (though it can also be grated over meals).
