Saucy Cheese Tortellini

I love tortellini.  I will even eat it plain.  I have made tortellini one million ways, and this one seems to be what I always come back to.  So easy, quick, and delicious.

Saucy Cheese Tortellini

Ingredients:

1 bag frozen cheese tortellini (you can use any kind really)

1 jar favorite marinara sauce

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

salt

pepper

Butter

Preheat oven to 350.  Use an 11×7 baking dish.  Butter sides of dish, or spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil, and boil frozen tortellini for about 5 minutes.  Drain.  In sauce pan heat marinara sauce through, and then remove from heat.  Add in heavy cream and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, stir.  Combine sauce mix and tortellini, and toss to coat.  Pour into greased baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese and a few cubes of butter.  The butter isn’t necessary, but I mean what isn’t better with butter right?

This dish is also versatile.  You can simply add in cooked italian sausage or cooked ground beef to make it a bit heavier.

This is also a great money-saving meal due to the inexpensive ingredients and lack of meat.
