Wedge Parmigiano-Reggiano - How long will it last?

I bought a wedge of Parmigiano reggiano. it says auricchio parmesan reggiano and it's net weight is .50lb. It was $9.00

How long should I expect this to last. I'm obviously not going to the whole wedge for one pasta dinner.

Thanks so much!

Mary

It should last for months. Store it in a ziploc bag in the cheese drawer. Don't wrap it in plastic wrap etc.

Do you eat it plain? Or always on something? What kind of things do you put it on?

I like it plain with a glass of apricot wine or similar.

I save the hard rinds for mac n cheese.I chop them small and mix with sauce into the pasta before baking.

There are a lot of things you can do with a parmesan tuile.
Make tubes,baskets,rounds and fill them with anything.

I love it plain or melted on a bagel. Yummy!

It looks attractive as a last step before serving to sprinkle it all over any italian or mediterranean dish or salad and let it sprinkle on the rim of the plate too.

Also, I use a ton of it when making pesto with fresh basil, roasted pine nuts, garlic, and olive oil.

mollyanne, next time you make pesto, try unsalted pistachio nuts in place of the pine nuts. I think you'll love it. I got the idea from Alton Brown.
