Costco sells excellent Parmesan cheese. In fact, it’s Parmigiano Reggiano – the real Parmesan cheese made in Italy (see what’s the difference between Parmesan and Parmigiano Reggiano). Parmigiano Reggiano is the best Parmesan cheese you can get. This premium cheese has a wonderful taste and you’ll love sprinkling it on your salads and pastas.
Shredded Parmigiano Reggiano cheese from Costco costs $14.99 per pound, which is a great price for the real Parmigiano Reggiano. Because this cheese is shredded, a pound is actually a huge jar of Parmesan cheese! Kept in a refrigerator, it will stay fresh for many months. Costco Parmigiano Reggiano is the Kirkland brand, aged over 24 month and is made in Italy.
I like Costco shredded Parmesan cheese so much, I often grab a handful of this cheese and eat it on its own! A great thing about Parmesan cheese is that it’s not as caloric as most cheeses – 1 tbsp of shredded Parmigiano Regiano has only 20 calories and 1.5 grams of fat, so sprinkle away!
When you try the real Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, you’ll never want to eat the imitation Parmesan cheese again. Do yourself a favor and head over to Costco to buy a jar of shredded Parmigiano Reggiano!
A great recipe for sprinkling Parmigiano Reggiano is main dish salad with turkey, blackberries and parmesan.
