Ingredients

  • 2 (9 ounce) packages refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (1/2 block of Philly) softened
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese divided
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Take the cream cheese out of the fridge at least 30 minutes prior to starting the recipe, or microwave it for 20-30 seconds. It needs to be very soft. Preheat your oven to 375F and move the rack to the top third of the oven.
  • Boil water for the tortellini, and cook it one minute less than package directions indicate. Drain and add it to a 9x13 casserole dish.
  • Meanwhile, add the butter to a skillet over medium heat. Once it's melted, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add in the cream cheese and heavy cream. Stir/whisk constantly until the cheese has melted in and it's thickened up a bit (this shouldn't take more than 4-5 minutes). Don't let the sauce get too thick because it'll continue to thicken up/reduce in the oven. If it becomes a bit too thick, add in a splash more cream.
  • Stir half the parmesan cheese into the sauce and then take the skillet off the heat. I add a bit of salt & pepper to the sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the tortellini and then toss it and spread it out in an even layer.
  • Top the tortellini with the rest of the parmesan and the mozzarella.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes until the cheese has melted, and then broil it for a few minutes to brown the cheese a bit (watch it carefully).
