Parmesan Substitute in Winter Greens Lasagne

Muchlove | Nov 20, 2011 03:58 AM

Recently I was flicking through Chow and noticed a winter greens lasagne that I bet my Mum would love to make around Christmas as a rich and tasty winter treat. The thing is, it calls for parmesan cheese and my Mum is vegetarian. (I did actually leave a comment on the recipe...but then I realised it would make more sense to ask on the boards)

There are vegetarian "Italian style" hard cheeses available but they do tend to be a bit pricey and are also sometimes quite hard to find. I was wondering if anyone had a particular recommendation for a cheese that would work well in this recipe. Obviously there are tonnes of cheeses that she could just chuck in and see how it turns out but I was hoping that someone with good "cheese knowledge" would be able to give a specific recommendation. As something to consider, please note that my Mum lives in the UK so it needs to be a cheese that is available there!

A link to the recipe is here: http://www.chow.com/recipes/11415-win...

Oh, and before someone says it, I know that some vegetarians do eat cheese made with animal rennet. That's fine and I'm happy for them, but the veggies in my family don't. I don't want to get into a big pointless debate about it, I just want to help my Mum find something delicious to make and eat over Christmas!
