Stella Black Pepper Romano is regular Romano cloaked in a veil of cracked black peppercorns. The cheese is aged for five months, letting the sharper, saltier bite of Romano blend with pleasantly piquant, slightly spicy coating of pepper. This hard cheese tastes best when sprinkled atop pasta, salads or grated and mixed into mashed potatoes. It pairs nicely with full-flavoured red wines.
