What do I with some leftover Mascarpone?

I just made some risotto and have about 3/4 of a tub of Mascarpone leftover.

Any suggestions as to what I should do with it?

  1. Fresh figs. Top fresh figs with marscapone.

    1. briefly soak strawberries in sweet balsamic, top with mascarpone

      or obviously any tiramisu variation

      1. use instead of butter on toast ...

          Oh God, I did this for a week for breakfast, topped with figs or strawberries, before I realized how quickly my pot belly was growing. So good.

        2. I'd mix it with wild roasted mushrooms, breadcrumbs and shallots for a ravioli filling

          1. Tiramisu or mixed with ricotta and use it to fill cannoli. Mascarpone is used much like pastry cream in Italian baking and the uses are almost endless.

            IMVHO, It's much too expensive to waste too.
