That stuff in the green can?
Fess up, how many of you have the "green can" of Parmesan wannabe in the fridge?
I always have a couple of lbs of grated Parm in the freezer. But spaghetti and pizza MUST be sprinkled liberally with the green can!
I don't buy the green can, but I do purchase a grated parmesan from Costco that is a couple of steps up from the green can. I don't use it when I want the real deal, but it has its uses. It makes excellent and reasonably priced frico chips, for instance, and is good added to melty things that need a bit of perking up. It's fine on pizza, too. Costs about the same as the green can but much better quality, IMO.
Yup - nearly always have the "green can" on hand - usually "low-fat green can", which hubby likes - for takeout pizza sprinkling.
Also have bags of pre-shredded Parmesan & Asiago on hand at all times - great for sprinkling on salads, soups, weekday pasta, etc.
And for special applications - always a nice hunk of the real stuff.
Yes, usually always have it on hand. As well as a chunk of asiago, parmesan, or romano. I believe it has to do with some nostalgia, bringing back a certain taste from childhood... yes, CB pizza kits!! I don't use the kits anymore, but just thinking about it brings back the smell, and it's a good one!
