Thanks.

That depends on what you will be using it for.

You could try Pecorino, Asiago, Romano, or even Manchego to name a few. Depending on why DH hates parm though he may not like these either. Are there other hard aged cheeses he does like?

Exactly.

What does he hate about it? The taste?

Aged gouda, aged provolone can be grated. So can a wide variety of peccorinos and Pave Vecchio.

If you have a good cheese store around there will be a variety of aged cheeses that you could taste.

Try a Dry aged jack.Just as hard and a lot less sharp.

There are also a couple of mexican cheeses like cotija and enchilado that are semi-hard and crumble good but I don't think they would work for baskest.The cotija is like feta but not tangy and is saltier.the Enchilado is like cotija that has a chili rub on the outside.

You might try grating some dry Monterey Jack. It is good on pasta
Give it a try and see.
