Whisking in the cubed leftover cheeses until dissolved, I bound it all with a small amount of beurre manié and brought it just to the boil before adding a large quantity of sliced mushrooms. I left it to return to heat while I boiled the fresh pasta, and added a scatter of chopped parsley to the sauce prior to serving. The  salad was dressed with a white balsamic dressing.
