Cook's Notes

Of the many varieties of pecorino, Romano is the most popular and is widely available here. Make sure to freshly shred the cheese, as it will melt more easily.

    Wow this really qualifies as a recipe? This now gives me confidence to share a recipe I've been tweaking for a while. I'm calling it "Cereal with Milk" ..basically the same concept, just not quite the same level of complexity.

    I am of Greek descent. I remember my mother and aunts making this dish when I was a young child in the 1950s. They told me that this dish became extremely popular during the depression since it was so economical and satisfying to feed this to the family.
