Like everyone else said, this was so super easy it's insane! And it tastes just fabulous. I think I'm going to say goodbye to any more storebought ;-) Why not, when this is just as easy, tastes even better, and doesn't have all those nasty preservatives in it?

This was very good. I added the suggested 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and it gave it a wonderful boost and aroma. To suit my husband's taste we added a few tablespoons of milk at the end, reducing the cheesy taste until he was satisfied. This recipe worked fine with store-bought grated parmesan. Enjoy!
