Tortellini and Cheese Casserole
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Simple comfort food the whole family will enjoy. For non vegetarian we like using a chicken tortellini.
18 ounces tortellini, cheese, refrigerated package, or meat tortellini for non vegetarian
3 cups marinara sauce, already prepared, jar or deli
1 1/2 cup cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Cook tortellini until al dente according to package directions (usually 6 minutes). Drain water from tortellini. In an 8 by 8 inch square baking dish, place one third of marinara sauce on bottom of dish. Arrange half of the tortellini in a single layer over the sauce. Sprinkle with one third of the mozzarella cheese. Make another layer of marinara, tortellini, and mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 5 more minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
