OK, I admit it, my family and I are a bunch of cheese fanatics – and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is at the top of the list! We love cheese in almost everything we eat.
We even find creative ways to sneak cheese into our breakfast as often as we can. One of our favorites is Parmigiano Reggiano cheese – OMG it’s literally the best cheese I’ve ever eaten. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are missing out on something incredibly delicious.
Why I Love Using Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
There are just three ingredients in this cheese —milk, salt, and rennet—and eight centuries of cheesemaking years of experience go into every wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano. From the local grasses and forage fed to the cows to the milk, they produce.
Parmigiano Reggiano is a true reflection of its place of origin and the art of generations and generations of cheese artisans. Produced exclusively in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, this cheese features the best flavors you can expect in a cheese.

We have many recipes we love using Parmigiano Reggiano cheese for but here are some of our favorites.
First, let’s start with one of our most delicious and super popular recipes – How To Make The Most Delicious Italian Stuffed Artichokes. We make them at least once a month and savor every morsel. The one key element in making them is using the best cheese available and without a doubt, it’s Parmigiano Reggiano.
A Versatile Cheese
I hope you get to try this recipe. It’s always a hit in my home whether I make them for a special occasion or just a relaxing dinner meal at home. I always buy extra artichokes too because they are perfect for leftovers. I microwave them for about 30 seconds and bam – just as good as the first time.
Next up – another way we use Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese is on our pasta dishes. Grab your cheese grater and get ready for this cheeselicious experience.
We love lots of cheese on our pasta – you can never have enough of it. I love grating it over my pasta and adding some small slices too. It’s hard to find the right words to describe just how delicious it is.
Every bite is an experience of flavors. It has a delicate combination of smoothness and crunch at the same time and packed with a delightfully nutty taste.
Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese So Many Ways!
Another way we love enjoying Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese is by making this simple but incredibly delicious appetizer. It’s super easy to make and always loved by everyone we serve it too.
Just add some Parmigiano Reggiano cheese adding sliced tomatoes and drizzling them with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add some salt and pepper and it’s that simple.
Doesn’t that look amazing? This Parmigiano Reggiano cheese can be perfectly paired with any fruit or vegetable and I love how super easy it is to prepare.
Another dish I love adding this delicious cheese too is my Butternut Squash Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe – it’s a healthier choice and is simply delicious! Butternut squash added the creamy without the cream and the cheese sealed the deal!
Always look for their signature dotted logo on the outer rind of the cheese. It means you have bought the best!
For rich flavor don’t buy pre-grated parmesan, buy a wedge and try it! Freshly grate the cheese from the wedge for the most intense flavor.
Use the wedge on a cheese board eaten raw, or shave pieces onto a salad. Use the rind to flavor a delicious homemade broth. There is a multitude of uses and recipes for a wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano.
