Ingredients
Bowls

2 cups grated, aged Parmigiano Reggiano
Parchment paper
Salad
Arugula
Cherry tomatoes
Pecorino Toscano cheese
Crushed walnuts
Olive oil

Instructions
1. For the bowls: Place a piece of parchment paper over a baking sheet. Heat the oven to
400°F. For each bowl, take a handful of grated Parmigiano and sprinkle on the parchment, making a flat round, about six inches in diameter.

2. Place the pan in the oven until the cheese has melted. As they begin to cool (but before they’ve cooled completely), drape each round over an upturned bowl to mold into bowl shape. Allow to cool completely.

3. For the salad: Make a salad with arugula, cherry tomatoes, and crushed walnuts. Place some salad in each of the Parmigiano Reggiano bowls and top with olive oil and a small slice of Pecorino Toscano.
