Both? lol! I've found finely grated Parmesan cheese at Trader Joe's in the cheese section. Not in a can. Just cheese, no fillers. But the grate is the same as what is in the can

Can if I use it in a recipe as a filler.

Fresh if I want parm cheese sauce or garnish.

Fresh only. I usually get Romano instead since it's less pricey.

It depends on what I'm using it for, dry, in things like meatloaf. The recipe I use for hamburg buns calls for both fresh shredded and dry in the can,.................. Ann

Like others have said, it depends on the recipe. I use canned if I want it to go in a sauce or on top of pizza (no crust of course). If I want it as a cheesy topping in a recipe I use fresh.

For me, the fresh (a very small amount) is best for pizza. For spaghetti and meatballs or sausage, only the fresh (a very large amount)--the canned would be worse than nothing. But for spaghetti and hamburg sauce, I find that fresh is almost useless, and the canned is really good.
