Tortellini Bake

Sorry it has been so long since my last post I promise they will be closer. However, we took an impromptu trip to Tallahassee to watch the Aggies win a bid to the College World Series. While we were there we ate the best Cuban food ever so if you ever make it to Tallahassee go to Gordo's on Pensacola St. YUM!

So since its our first full day back I decided to do something super easy but very yummy my Tortellini Bake!

- 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil
- 1/2 onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 8 slices of pepperoni
- 8 slices of Genoa salami
- 1/4 cup of Philadelphia Cooking Creme Italian and Herbs
- 1 package fresh or frozen tortellini ( I prefer the bertolli four cheese)
- 1/2 cup of pasta sauce of your choice
-3/4 cup of Mozzarella

First go ahead and boil your tortellini and set it aside while your prep everything else. Also preheat the oven  to 350 degrees.
Next you need to put the olive oil into your skillet and get it hot. Then go ahead and mince your onion and garlic and throw it in the skillet.

Next slice up the pepperoni and salami I usually cut it into strips and then squares.

Add the salami and pepperoni to the skillet and allow it to simmer. Next add the Philadelphia cooking creme! I love this stuff so versatile when cooking Italian dishes!

After adding the creme go ahead and add your pasta sauce and about a 1/4 of the mozzarella grated.

Now it looks somewhat like a rose sauce. Now take the tortellini and mix it into the sauce and put into an 8x8 baking dish. Add the rest of your grated mozzarella over the top and bake for 10-15 minutes. Now you have a delicious easy dish! You can put anything you want into this from grilled chicken, sausage or veggies! Make it your own!
