Three Cheese Baked Tortellini

Looking at this picture is making me crave this all over again. There is no doubt about it, we love tortellini in this family.  Add some spinach and a good sauce and we are set to go! This recipe is adapted from Amy's Cooking Adventures.

1 (9oz) package whole wheat three cheese tortellini
2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup homemade or jarred pasta sauce
4 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (divided)
1/4 cup lowfat milk
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 350. Bring water to a boil.  Cook pasta as directed. Meanwhile in a pot, combine the pasta sauce, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese and milk.  Cook until everything is melted and smooth.  Add the spinach and mix in. Once the pasta is done cooking add to the sauce, stir to coat and pour into a baking dish.  Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining parmesan cheese.  Bake for 15 to 25 minutes.
