  1. Creamy & Cheesy Layers: Add Puck Shredded Mozzarella & Cheddar Cheese Mix to your favorite pasta dishes like lasagna, baked ziti, or stuffed chicken for a creamy, cheesy texture.
  2. Perfect Melt: Sprinkle Puck Shredded Mozzarella Cheese generously over your pasta dishes, ensuring that it covers the entire surface. This ensures a perfect melt, filling your dish with a rich and creamy taste.
  3. Evenly Creamy Sauce: When incorporating Puck Shredded Mozzarella Cheese into your pasta, add it gradually while tossing the pasta. This allows the cheese to melt evenly and create a velvety sauce, preventing clumps.
  4. Gentle Heat: Be cautious with heat when melting Puck Shredded Mozzarella Cheese into your pasta sauce. Overheating can make the cheese stringy or grainy. Use low to medium heat and stir continuously until it's fully melted.
  5. Flavorful Finishing Touch: Just before serving, sprinkle a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on individual servings. This adds a burst of flavor and elevates the presentation of your dish.
  6. Double Cheesy Goodness: Experiment with cheese-stuffed pasta such as ravioli or tortellini for a double dose of cheesy goodness in every bite.
  7. Thicker, Creamier Sauce: To thicken a pasta sauce, simply reduce the heat to low and gradually stir in Puck Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, allowing it to melt and blend smoothly into the sauce. This will give your sauce a creamier, thicker consistency, perfect for coating your pasta. Keep in mind that once mozzarella is added, you may need to adjust your seasonings accordingly.

  1. Easy Melting: Take Puck Shredded Mozzarella Cheese out of the fridge and allow it to thaw for 10 minutes. This softens it, making it easier to melt perfectly inside your favorite pastries.
  2. Flakier Texture: After assembling your pastries, refrigerate them for 20-30 minutes before baking. This helps the pastry dough firm up, resulting in a flakier and less doughy texture.
  3. Delectable, Worry-Free Bites: Once you've taken your cheese-filled pastries out of the oven, allow them to cool for a few minutes. This helps the cheese set slightly, making it easier to handle and enjoy without burning your mouth.
