We’re giving the Gift of PARM!

Giving the gift of PARM? Yes, Prima Strada is giving PARMESAN RINDS as a gift! Parmesan rinds contain magical properties (and magic is certainly part of the holiday season).

Stop by your favourite Pizzeria Prima Strada and pick up your small present – a pack of parm rinds. Available December 18 – 23 11:30 a.m. until closing, while supplies last!

The rind of a parmesan wheel is all cheese, like the crust on a loaf of bread. It is full of calcium and contains trace amounts of lactose. It adds flavour to a broth, soups and sauces.

A friend swears the ultimate snack is to soften a piece of rind in the microwave then drizzle with your favourite syrupy balsamic vinegar. I prefer to use in soups and in our favourite – pasta ceci. Before serving, I remove the rind, chop into small bits and add back into the pot. You’ll find chewy delicious bites are the best part of the dish.

Here’s a favourite recipe for Black Eyed Pea Stew , it needs a parm rind (of course)! I’ve also included a few notes (I’ve made it many times):

*Can use chicken broth in place of the water.
*Can use mild sausage and it is just as tasty for those needing less heat and more savoury.
*Black eyed peas can be found in bulk section at Save On Foods
*If you need a parm rind or 2, let me know. Seriously, I have plenty to share and you don’t want to skip it.
*Love the bread but can skip it and still good but don’t skip the salsa verde.
*Can be doubled and freezes well.
