Cheesy Baked Tortellini

We love this! It's so good and it's easy! We eat it with Cesar salad and bread sticks.

Cheesy Baked Tortellini


Olive oil
2 C. marinara sauce
1/3 C. mascarpone cheese (Soft cheese. harder to find. We couldn't find it at walmart but stop & shop had it. It's where you buy the Humus)
1/4 C. chopped fresh parsley leaves (1/3 that amount if dried)
2 tsp thyme (1/3 that amount if dried)
1 lb cheese tortellini
2 oz thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350

Lightly oil an 8x8 dish

Whisk sauce, mascarpone cheese, parsley and thyme in a large bowl.

Cook tortellini in salted boiling water until just tender (about 2 min.) Drain.

Add tortellini to sauce and toss to coat. (I didn't toss in the baking dish I just forgot to take a picture of it when it was still in the bowl...sorry)

Transfer to baking dish and top with Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Cover and bake until the sauce bubbles and the cheese on top melts. (about 30 min)
