Parmigiano Reggiano & White Beans

This Parmigiano Reggiano & White Beans recipe can be served as a family-style dip with crusty bread and crackers for game night or a fabulous main course served alongside a dish of polenta and a big green salad. A quick trip to your favorite grocery store is all it takes to gather everything you need. This recipe has so many of my favorite things: white beans, fire roasted tomatoes, artichokes, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Also, it takes just a few minutes to assemble and bakes in under 15 minutes! And, I love that it is served in the same dish as it was baked in—no stress and very little mess. Adding finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese just before serving adds incredible richness and the cheeses’s little bit of extra saltiness helps bring the entire dish together, transforming it from good to crazy good!


You can assemble this dish up to one hour ahead of time and leave it to sit at room temperature before baking.

Whipped Parmigiano Reggiano & Roasted Garlic Dip

When I think of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, I immediately crave its unique texture as a hard cheese with those crystalline bits throughout. Those crunchy little pockets, or flavor crystals, are formed by the aging process and develop from the amino acids in each wheel. Not only do they give Parmigiano Reggiano its signature texture, but those pockets are filled with flavor. So, it is safe to think that its texture does not lend well to being “whippable”, but great discoveries are made every day!

It turns out when Parmigiano Reggiano is finely grated (I use a microplane for this) and blended with buttery-soft deeply roasted garlic and creamy mascarpone cheese, it blends perfectly smoothly and adds incredible flavor to my Whipped Parmigiano Reggiano & Roasted Garlic Dip.

Your tongue will think you are eating a very flavorful and luxurious cloud. The dip has the most airy, fluffy texture – like a light mousse.

Pear & Parmigiano Reggiano Tart

Whether it be food or flowers, simplicity always wins, and this Pear & Parmigiano Reggiano Tart is the perfect example..

Using just a handful of really good and flavorful ingredients, this tart has the sweetness from pears, earthiness from fresh thyme, and a double dose of flavor and texture from Parmigiano Reggiano.

Finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano is the base layer under the pears. As the tart bakes, the pears release their juices and add a subtle sweetness to the cheese, enhancing the flavor contrast.

This tart is a great example of how the flavor of Parmigiano Reggiano can elevate home cooking to another level.

Parmigiano Reggiano Party Toast

These Parmigiano Reggiano Party Toasts are easy to make and crazy good. Baguette slices are topped with a creamy mixture of freshly grated real Parmigiano reggiano, mayonnaise and minced garlic, then baked until brown and puffy. A shower of parsley when they come out of the oven finishes them off -- unless you want to add red pepper flakes for some extra kick.
