Pecorino Romano is a hard, salty Italian cheese, often used for grating, made with sheep’s milk. The name “pecorino” simply means “ovine” or “of sheep” in Italian; the name of the cheese.

It has a hard, brittle rind and grates easily. Parmesan’s aging process lasts two years or more, so it has a nutty, salty flavor. It tastes great on eggplant or chicken Parmesan. Pecorino is made from sheep’s milk (pecora means “ewe” in Italian)
