    This looks good, however,Parmesan cheese is not vegetarian! Tesco do a vegetarian cheese that grates and tastes very like Parmesan. Sorry can’t remember the name but it can be Googled.

    Just a few notes to add to this recipe regarding vegetarian Parmesan cheese. I am reliably informed that the following listed places are where vegetarian Parmesan-like hard Italian-style cheeses can be found in the UK:
    Twineham Grange Vegetarian Pasta cheese from Bookhams is lovely and can be bought online and from Waitrose.
    The Better Food Company in Bristol stocks some tasty vegetarian-friendly Parmesan-like cheese.
    Whole Foods stores, which seem to be growing in number across the UK, also have a couple of varieties of vegetarian Italian hard-cheese.
    Biona Organic Montello Parmesan Style Cheese does the job and can be found in some health food shops.
    Colla Vegetarian Italian Cheese Stick, from Ocado (and Waitrose) is also lovely.
