FAQs About Asiago

One serving of Asiago consists of one ounce of cheese and contains 130 calories, according to its Food and Drug Administration labeling. It provides a rich source of calcium and protein -- an estimated 20 percent and 14 percent, respectively, of recommended daily allowances. One serving also includes 11 grams of fat. The cheese is negligible for carbohydrates.

Asiago has a large number of culinary applications. Some believe it is best used when grated and sprinkled as a topping onto pizza, on salads, or used in various recipes for breads, salads, pastas, or soups. It can also be sliced or cubed and served as a snack or appetizer at happy hours or cocktail receptions with pretzels or crackers. It pairs nicely with hard cider or fruity beers, pilsners, or Belgian ales. If you prefer wine, consider a Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Sauvignon Blanc. 

Depending on your immediate needs, you may be able to substitute other types of cheeses in recipes or as toppings for Asiago with good results. A few suggestions to consider include:
  • Parmagiano-Reggiano,  perhaps the best known of all Italian cheeses. While this is sometimes generically referred to as Parmesan within the United States, the two are very different. Parmagiano-Reggiano is a hard cheese that can be eaten or used in recipes in sliced, grated, or chunked form. It is often described as having a fruity or nutty taste.
  • Pecorino Romano is a hard, salty Italian cheese that is most often shredded or grated and used in salads, soups, or other recipes. It is sharper, with more of a tangy aftertaste than Asiago. In contrast to other cheeses, Pecorino Romano is made from goat's milk.
  • GranaPadano, a hard cheese with a similarly rich legacy with origins dating back to 12th-century monks. It is rich, tangy, and evokes a slightly nuttier taste.
