Dinner suggestions?

So this is totally random, but I have a bunch of Italian style cheese in the fridge that needs to get used this weekend, before it gets moldy, and I am looking for ideas on what to do with it. Usually I make some from-scratch tomato sauce and make baked ziti, lasagna, or manicotti, but I would like to try something different. Only problem, is I canít think of anything. Iíd like something that has lots of veggies in it, or where I can add lots of veggies. Husband says no pizza. Any suggestions?

Is it Mozzarella? If so: Caprese Salad.


I've never tried making it myself, but it seems like something delicious and light. Thinking it would be especially good in the summer for lunching on after working the flowers and lawn work in the heat.

@AtokaGhosthorse it's shredded, and not 100% mozzerella, so that wouldn't work. I love caprese salad, though. I could make caprese-style grilled cheese, but I don't think that would use all the cheese I have. I will think about it, though.

@mmshiro same deal... it's shredded. I should have mentioned that at the beginning.

Are you kidding? That is not a problem: Ciabatta+butter or olive oil+crushed garlic+shredded cheese+oven...plus apples, wine, and netflix. Call it "substantial hors d'oeuvres".

How about a nice vegetable lasagna? The one I have in mind has zucchini as one layer and mushrooms on the other...


Or if you don't want to add any pasta, you can replace the pasta with zucchini and layer tomato sauce, meat and cheese there...

baked spaghetti squash with the shredded cheese on top

omelets with cheese

homemade mac & cheese uses up lots of cheese and any variety normally works. I always add peas or broccoli to my mac & cheese to get more veggies in there.

quesadillas - you can do this with no meat and just veggies and cheese.

Just a few suggestions off the top of my head.

You can take zucchini, hull them out, top with marina and shredded cheese like that, then parmesean cheese and Italian seasoned bread crumbs, and bake it till the zuke is at your desired level of doneness. Verra tasty.

@cbar and @AtokaGhosthorse those both sound good to me, but my husband is picky and won't eat zuchinni or any kind of squash. Also eggplant. Maybe THIS is why I always just cook the same thing every time....

I sometimes make "no pasta pasta" where I chop up a huge batch of zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, etc., and sautť them up with Italian herbs and spices and black pepper. Goes well with spaghetti squash too but honestly you can just do the veg, then add pasta sauce, etc.. You could grate up the cheese and mix it into that and have something a little different and low carb and (relatively) healthy! Sausage would be good in it too if you wanted to add meat.
