Victoria - have a look at this article about melting cheese, type of cheese, acid content of some foods added to it and when. May be of help in determining what happened.

What were you making? What kind of cheese did you use?

It was a Italian dish with Parmesan and pecorino, when I added the green it just rolled everything up into a big ball off the pasta. I thought maybe I should have used some pasta water to help it. Just wondering why it happened so I can avoid in future.
