By on 3/04/2015 02:13:00 PM

On Saturday, March 7, 2015, Whole Foods Markets across the county will celebrate their Guinness World Record for the "Most Parmigiano Reggiano Wheels Cracked at the Same Time"--a record they set in 2008--and we are excited to join in this annual celebration!  We love cheese in our little corner of the world and we are very excited to have been asked to create a new Parmiagiano Reggiano recipe in honor of this Whole Foods Market event.

This creamy, delicious Parmiagiano Reggiano Mousse makes the perfect appetizer spread to begin an Italian meal--or serve on a party buffet.  While this recipe is loaded with flavor and sounds complicated--it is so easy to prepare!  We also have a $25 Whole Foods Gift Card to give away to one of our readers at the end of this post to inspire your own kitchen adventure!

While we were not compensated for this post, Whole Foods Market provided us a kit of ingredients for recipe inspiration.

Makes 12-18 Servings
1 c. Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, grated
