Method: 

Trim romaine. Separate leaves and wash. Slice romaine crosswise in thin slices. Cut one garlic clove in half and rub one half all over the inside of a wooden salad bowl. Add romaine to bowl.

Cut remaining garlic cloves in pieces and put in a small food processor with the anchovies. Pulse to puree garlic and anchovies. Add lemon juice and pulse to combine. Add olive oil, again pulsing to combine, until a thick dressing is obtained. Add cheese and black pepper and pulse once to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Toss romaine with dressing. Top with shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano and freshly ground black pepper.
