what to make with leftover heavy cream?

i used it in mushroom soup, and i'm gonna use some in curried carrot soup, but it's a bigger-than usual container, (maybe a pint?), and i don't know what to use it for. i don't want to make whipped cream since i hate most sweet foods. i would shake up a jar of butter, but we have a surplus of butter going in the fridge as it is. i plan on baking a pan of macaroni and cheese, but i only add 1 cup of cream to that. any ideas would be much appreciated. thanks. btw, nothing sweet, okay? i'll probably have about 1/3 cup left once i make my other foods with cream in them.

Do you drink coffee? You could use it in that, or tea. If it's too rich for you to use it "straight" add a little milk to it.
Or make some hot chocolate with it and milk.

Pour it on some cereal. You can stand the calories.

How about a bolognese sauce for pasta?

Just Google and you will find a number of recipes.

It is a nice meat/tomato sauce and the cream takes a bit off the acidity of the tomatoes, as well as adding flavor.

Just an idea. I hope it helps.

This is my 13 yr. old's all-time favortie meal that we learned from Emeril:

Pasta with Peas and Bacon Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse

Recipe Summary
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


1 pound cheese filled tortellini
3 ounces fresh bacon, julienned (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons chopped onions
6 ounces heavy cream
1/2 cup fresh peas (blanched), or 4 ounces frozen peas
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
Salt and black pepper
Chopped parsley

Place tortellini in the pot of boiling water.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, place on a paper towel to drain. Pour out all the bacon grease except for 1 tablespoon. In the same skillet place the onion and cook for 2 minutes, or until golden. Pour in the cream, and reduce until lightly thickened.

Remove the pasta from the water when it is al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and add the pasta to the cream mixture. Add bacon back to the pan along with the peas and cheese. Reduce for 1 minute. Toss and adjust the seasonings. Spoon into a large pasta bowl and serve. Garnish with additional grated Parmesan and chopped parsley, if desired.

I make penne alla vodka with it. Basically, just a nice tomato sauce and toss in your leftover cream and a shot of vodka. Serve over penne.
