    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    Made as written, except I halved the oregano. Delicious and excellent texture! More like 4 servings for my family, though.  -  12 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
