How to shave cheese?

Can I shave cheese (i.e. a block of parmesan) without having a special tool? How would I do this?

Use a vegetable peeler. Works quite well but may take some time.

So I can just a vegetable peeler to get shaved cheese as seen on the top of the pasta in this recipe?

I'd bet that's how they did it for the picture.
