There are so many things that impressed me about Italy. One that stood out throughout the entire country was the quality of ingredients. They are all about simple recipes, incredible quality ingredients and wine…. lots of wine. And cheese. ALL THE CHEESE! It felt like home 🙂

Inspired by my time in Italy, I’ll be teaming up with Parrano for the rest of the year to bring you some incredible recipes using their cheese!! It’s not just any cheese though… Parrano is aged for five months, which makes it perfectly nutty like Parmigiano-Reggiano but with a firm and smooth texture like a young Gouda. I mean, sounds perfect right? It’s full of flavor and versatile enough to cut, grate and melt. I’ve been using it in mac and cheese - to die for. Adding it to pizza - naturally. Throwing it on cheese boards - duh. And topping my Chicken Parm with it on the regular. I can’t get enough. Literally, we bought Whole Foods out of stock a few weeks back. Not sorry about it! You guys will love it! Today it’s going into a Herb Compound Butter and then getting slathered on top of a big juicy Grilled Rib Eye Steak. Screams summer right? Let’s do it!

For the Grilled Rib Eye Steak

  • Season both sides of the rib eyes with plenty of salt and pepper. Heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium high heat. Grill steaks to desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, 8 minutes per side for medium. Remove the steaks from the heat, and let rest for 5-10 minutes.

Yes, these are BIG steaks! Leftovers are great on top of salads. Be sure and slice those leftovers across the grain so that it is tender and easy to chew.
