Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta

Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta

Cheese wheel pasta has constantly been featured across the internet, so I finally had to give it a try. So, we shipped an 80 pound parmesan cheese wheel straight from Italy. The first trip, it was damaged in transit. I don’t know exactly what that means…did it roll off the truck? Did somebody “accidentally” damage it so they could eat it? I mean, who doesn’t want some fresh Parmigiano Reggiano. But it really does make me think. Hmm…

But the second trip, it made it all the way to my kitchen in Boston. After learning the delicate yet demanding process of opening the cheese wheel, we dug out a “bowl” within the cheese, lit it on fire to get a cheesy sauce, then added our fresh, homemade egg pasta to with some garlic cream sauce and blended it together. The result? Indescribable.
