Welcome to DC by the way!
Divide it into whatever portions the recipe calls for. The recipe might call for the sauce to be added in 3 one-cup measurements, for example. Or you might need to reserve only a tablespoon of the cheese or better and add in almost all the rest.
In other words, don't just divide the ingredients up equally. Do what the recipe says.
