Baked tortellini

Baked tortellini from here

Olive oil
2 cups marinara sauce
1/3 cup mascarpone cheese (I used softened cream cheese because it’s cheaper and very similar)
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1 tsp of each of the following: basil, thyme and Italian seasoning
1 pound cheese tortellini (the refrigerated type, not frozen)
shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 350. Using olive oil, lightly oil an 8 by 8 by 2-inch baking dish.Whisk the sauce, mascarpone cheese, parsley and other seasonings in a large bowl to blend. Cook the tortellini in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain. Add the tortellini to the sauce and toss to coat. Transfer the tortellini mixture to the prepared baking dish. Top the mixture with the mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake at 350 until bubbly and lightly browned, about 30 minutes.

Review: Who can go wrong with cheese, pasta and more cheese! Great weeknight meal!
