Parmigiano-Reggiano can't find-Substitute?
I live in a very small rural town, for starters, and I am unable to find parmigiano-reggiano in a regular grocery store. Is there a substitute for it that someone can recommend that they have actually tried?
I am looking to make a home-made pesto sauce since I have an abundance of basil growing right now and the recipe calls for this ingredient. I Googled and I have read that it is same or similar to ordinary parm cheese which I have on hand, but I need an expert's opinion before attempting. This would be my first time trying this recipe and I don't want to mess it up. Thanks.
