There’s always a wedge of cheddar on a cheese plate – and if you’re lucky, there’ll be a hefty chunk leftover for this simple but oh-so-comforting pasta dish. Check out the Cheese Plate that inspired it all, and stay tuned for more leftover cheese recipes! – Amy

When you have a hunk of cheddar or mozzarella available to you, make this super easy pasta dinner.

Cheesy Bake-and-Broil Pasta

Make an easy béchamel, similar to this recipe, and stir in leftover shredded sharp cheddar. Meanwhile, cook tiny dried pasta shells in a pot of boiling water until al dente. Toss the drained pasta with the béchamel and bake in a 450º oven for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes to add some nice color and crunchy bits to the top.

    Great idea for all those extra little wedges that I seem to find lurking in the cheese drawer.
