Ingredients

  • 19 oz. Refrigerated Three Cheese Tortellini
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. Flour
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 1/4 Cups Milk (2% or Whole)
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 14 oz. Petite Diced Tomatoes (undrained)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Spinach, packed

  • 2 tsp. Fresh Oregano, chopped
  • Salt to Taste
  • Pepper to Taste
  • 1 1/4 Cup Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Cook cheese tortellini, drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, flour and onion powder and cook for one minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Continue whisking and slowly pour in milk and cream. Wisk until smooth.
  3. Continue stirring constantly (decrease the heat to medium so the milk does not scald) until the mixture begins to barely simmer and thicken.
  4. Add tomatoes oregano, basil, spinach and parmesan cheese (Use just 3/4 of your parmesan cheese now. You'll save the other 1/2 cup for the end). Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cook several minutes longer until the sauce has thickened even more, the spinach is wilted, and the cheese has melted.
  6. Remove from heat and add cooked tortellini into the sauce. Mix together and spoon into a large casserole dish.
  7. Add 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese to the top and bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes until the cheese on top has melted.

Notes

This can be made ahead and frozen. To make ahead, cook on stove as instructed, but instead of baking at the end, freeze instead. Then, thaw overnight in the refrigerator the night before you want to bake it. Then bake for 30-45 minutes or until completely warm all the way through and cheese on top is melted.
