Cheesy Chicken Tortellini

Tonight I tried a variation on an old recipe that I had. Normally when I make it, I use cheese tortellini. But as I was going to grab it at the grocery store, I noticed that right next to it was Chicken Tortellini. I thought that might be a nice change. It's quick, easy, and yummy!!
So, here it is!
Olive oil
2 cup Marinara sauce
1/3 c mascarpone cheese
1/4 c chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp chopped thyme
1 lb cheese or chicken tortellini
2 oz shredded mozzerella
1/4 c grated parmesan

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly oil an 8x8x2 dish.
Whisk sauce, mascarpone, parsley and thyme in a large bowl to blend.
Cook tortellini in a large pot until just tender (about 2 min)

Drain. Add tortellini to sauce and toss to coat.

Transfer to baking dish. Top with mozzerella and parmesan.
Cover and bake till sauce bubbles and cheese melts, about 30 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!!
Come back later this week for a meatloaf recipe, and one of my very favorites-potato pancakes!!!!
