Frico is a cheese crisp sometimes made with Parmigiano cheese. Here, the crisp gets crumbled for added crunch in pasta dishes.

  1. 3 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated (1 cup)
  2. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  3. 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a 10-inch, ovenproof, nonstick skillet, combine the Parmigiano with the thyme and the pepper, toss well and spread in an even layer. Bake the cheese for about 8 minutes, until golden and nutty. Slide the frico onto a plate and let cool. Coarsely crumble.
