What is Pecorino Romano cheese?

Pecorino Romano is a hard, salty cheese made from sheep’s milk that has been produced in the Italian regions of Lazio, Sardinia, and Tuscany for over 2,000 years. This cheese is known for its distinctive sharp and tangy flavor, which makes it a popular ingredient in many traditional Italian dishes, including pasta dishes, soups, and salads.

This cheese is often used as a substitute for Parmesan cheese due to its similar texture and taste. Moreover, it is so versatile that it can be enjoyed on its own or paired with other ingredients, such as fruit, nuts, or cured meats.
