Cheese-y Deliciousness

About a month ago I made this recipe. The boys inhaled it. However they did groan when they saw the green (from the spinach-you can leave it out if you like).  Today being Ash Wednesday, it is a good meatless dish (for those of us that enjoy veggies). I added how I would do it if I were not make it meatless too.

Cheese Tortellini Casserole
adapted from:

24oz cheese tortellini (either frozen or dried), cooked
12 oz mushrooms, chopped to ressemble meat (or just use Italian sausage for a meat-y variety)
28oz can crushed tomatoes (pasta sauce)
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained
Italian seasoning with garlic and onion
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan, shredded

Combine all ingredients (except for cheeses) in a large bowl.  Add to a greased 9x13 pan. Top with cheeses. Cover with greased foil and bake until slightly melted. Remove foil and bake an additional 5minutes until lightly browned.
