Can I substitute Parmasean Cheese for pecorino romano?

I found a recipe that calls for pecorino romano cheese but all I have is Parmesan. Will it work instead? What can I sub for it?

  • In a recipe like that, calling for grated, you can. The only time you have to worry about substituting is for something baked - the grated parm burns faster than regular cheese.

  • Yes it will be fine, a tad saltier so adjust how much salt your putting in, What are you making?
