I can’t remember where I originally found this recipe–somewhere on the food network (maybe Giada de Laurentiis?). And through my own laziness I’ve dumbed it down a bit and made it super easy. But goodness is it yummy! I’m not a big spaghetti sauce fan, but this I love. And great leftovers.
Easy Cheesy Tortellini
1 package tortellini
1 container mascarpone (use maybe 1/3-1/2 cup)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
Spices to taste (oregano, parsley, etc.)
1/2-1 cup mozzarella cheese
(original recipe calls for sliced smoked mozz which is great but hard to find)
1. Boil tortellini
Picture taken in Lubbock 2006 when I still made Scott eat dinner at the kitchen table (now we are in the bad habit of eating in front of the TV…when we have kids, I say, that’ll change). I told Scott that he needed to make a “happy plate” which is kid-term for clean plate. What a smartass! And boy does he look young!!
