Let's get this clear. Is your mum ovo lacto vegetarian? Vegan (no animal products whatsoever)? Or some other flavour of vegetarian?

i made a similar dish, and in addition to the thick cheesy sauce with mushrooms, I add spinach too. Adds some flavor and green to the dish.

BTW, Im vegetarian too ( for 25 + years)

I doubt the OP would have created a menu with cheese sauce if she were not a lacto- vegetarian. That and her concern about how parm cheese is made(usually with cow rennet) suggests so too.

Well, if the cow rennet is a problem, I suggest using Kosher Parm, it is made with vegetable rennet.

The OP asks in the thread title for a vegetarian alternative for Parmesan cheese.

You can get vegetarian Cheeses in supermarkets in the UK plus we have a really good variety of health food stores too, you can also get it online at the likes of Goodness Direct ? If the OP is in Liverpool England I would imagine you would be able to get it here, where have you looked ?
