  • You can use it on pizza, in pasta dishes (stuffed shells?) or on meatball subs (my fav is chicken parm meatball subs, it's a Rachel Ray recipe on foodnetwork.com).

  • You can wrap it tightly and freeze it. Use it as you would mozarella. Off the top of my head: pizza, lasagne, ziti and bean casserole. Contact me for recipes, if you are interested.

  • Cheese keeps for way longer than the expiration date. As long as there isn't mold growing, you should be okay to eat it.

  • If you can't use it all, freeze it. I would even shred it first. Use it in grilled cheese, on nachos, in stuffed pasta or mac and cheese.
