three cheese pasta (or cleaning out the cheese drawer pasta)

I made up this cheesy pasta sauce from three cheeses I had in the refrigerator that needed to be used up. I don't even know what one of them was. I bought it at Whole Foods a little while ago when I wanted something new and I can't remember what kind of cheese it was. For now, we will call it "mystery cheese." The point of this recipe is just a way to use up leftover cheese.

  • Penne pasta
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup mystery white cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  1. Cook pasta according to directions on package
  2. While pasta cooks, place butter, garlic, and onion is a sauce pan and cook them until they start to golden
  3. Add evaporated milk, flour, 3 cheeses, pepper
  4. Still until sauce is smooth
  5. Drain pasta then put it back into the pot
  6. Pour cheesy sauce onto pasta and mix well
  7. Place tomato and green onion on top
