20 oz. fresh tortellini or ravioli ( I use Buitoni and I mix Chicken and Cheese tortellini)
1 - 1 Lb. 8 oz. jar marinara (I use Ragu)
1 Tbl. Italian Seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup. Italian mix cheese, shredded (I use a store bought bag of Italian 5 cheese pre shredded)
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 with cooking spray and set aside.
Bring a large stockpot filled with water to a boil and add the tortellini. Boil for 4 minutes, just to par cook.
Drain the pasta and put into the bottom of the baking dish.
In another bowl pour the marinara sauce and the seasonings and mix to incorporate. When I emptied the jar into the bowl I added approximately 1/4 cup water just to rinse the jar and added it to the sauce.
Pour pasta sauce over the tortellini and stir to combine.
Layer the cheese over the pasta and bake for 30 minutes, uncovered.
The top should be golden and bubbly when done.
Serve with warm french bread and veggies or salad. YUM!
