  3. Mix the diced tomatoes and chiles, heavy cream, and 4 cups of shredded cheddar in the pot with the pasta.
  4. Dump the mixture into a 9" x 13" casserole dish and cover with remaining 2 cups of shredded cheddar.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
