Cheesy Baked Tortellini

Tortellini always reminds me of growing up. My use to fix it for the two of us for lunch or when my dad and brother were gone. It's one of the comfort food things. This recipe came from Real Mom Kitchen and Gray and I both thought it was good. I just love simple recipes and this one is pretty dang simple.

1 (19oz) bag fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
1 (24 oz) jar of marinara sauce
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 350. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the tortellini for 3 minutes. Mix together the marinara sauce, cream and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish and top with remaining parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25 minutes or until the cheese is starting brown and the sauce is bubbly.
