Red & White Tortellini

This is a very easy and fairly quick pasta dish to make. It was a huge hit with my husband and a pasta dish I will definitely make again. Here's the recipe, which would serve 5-6.

Red & White Tortellini

680 mL can or jar of pasta sauce
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp flour
2 Cups milk (I used 1%)
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella or cheddar cheese
600 g tortellini, cooked (I used 3 cheese tri-colour tortellini)

Mushroom Sauce: Melt butter; saute mushrooms and onion with garlic until tender. Sprinkle with flour and gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture thickens. (I added a handful of mozza cheese to this and let it melt.) Remove from heat, stir in Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Add the sauce to cooked, drained, tortellini.

Spread spaghetti sauce over bottom of 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Spoon tortellini mushroom mixture on top. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place in 300 F oven for about 30 minutes to heat through and melt cheese. Serves 5-6
