Leftover Mac & Cheese Your Family Will Eat Up

Leftover Mac & Cheese Your Family Will Eat Up

Here’s a great way to use up all those premium cheeses you set out for your guests but not all of them were eaten. Make a delicious cheese sauce and add pasta.

We always serve a few nice cheese wedges and crackers when we entertain. Often we set out an antipasto tray for everyone to enjoy with a drink before dinner. There are always a few pieces left before dinner, so I wrap them up and put them in the fridge for another day.

Then my sister once shared the idea of making pasta with the bits and and pieces that are leftover, and I just had to try it.

Not that we have trouble finishing cheese in my house since everyone loves it.

However, if we don’t, it seems like such a shame to waste them, especially because they are usually pricey premium varieties.

For this particular batch we had leftover manchego, habanero cheddar and jarlsberg cheese. The habanero cheddar was the perfect amount of heat, and added a great flavor to the dish.

You may not like spicy food. That’s why this is a great idea. Since you will probably be serving cheeses that you like, using them in this recipe should automatically work well with your taste.
