Can You Freeze Romano Cheese?

If you find yourself with excess Romano cheese or simply want to stock up for later use, freezing it can be a viable option.

Unfortunately, while freezing Romano cheese can extend its shelf life, it may also affect its texture and flavor. To freeze Romano cheese, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container.

When thawing, it's best to let it defrost in the refrigerator. Once melted, the cheese may crumble more quickly, so it's ideal when used in recipes that call for grated or shredded cheese.
