Need potluck dish using Parmigiano-Reggiano
HI, I've got about 1/2 pound of Parm Reg that I need to use up (I hate to waste food) but it gives me a nasty headache. I've got a potluck thingy coming up Saturday night and would like to use it then.
Can you think of something that can be made in advance, can be transported, and doesn't require any last minute preparation or reheating?
Stuff chunks of it into medjool dates, or...
Wrap chunks in proscuitto and secure with a pick, or...
Make a platter with chunks of the cheese, some rolled up proscuitto, and figs or any fruit of your choice. Drizzle the entire platter with a really good quality balsamic vinegar (reduce a cheap vinegar to a syrup if you don't have a good one on hand). Have picks on hand for people to serve themselves.
Lasagne alla Bolognese will use up a good bit, and makes a great potluck dish - if you bake it off last minute and wrap it in towels, it will be the perfect temperature for serving when you get where you're going.
My first thought was a Tetrazzini – chicken, turkey, even just mushroom, and you can't have too much parmigiano in that. But pesto is brilliant and won't need to be served hot.
