    Annacia's Note:

    You won't find red sauce in this dish, just cheesy goodness. If you feel like indulging just a bit give this a try. You can easily double this recipe and make one for today and an extra to pop in the freezer for a heat-and-eat meal someday in the future.

      This recipe truly is excellent! It comes together quite quickly and is sooo tasty! The cheesy sauce is creamy and delish and the crunchy topping adds a super nice touch. I dont usually like breadcrumb toppings, but this one really was great!
      I used tortellini filled with ricotta and tomato as that's all I could get and since I like my sauce a tad spicier I added in some chilli powder, cayenne pepper, rosemary and black pepper. The nutmeg worked really well with those.
      After 15 minutes I had to cover my casserole dish to prevent overbrowning, but that might well have been due to my oven being on the hotter side.
      What you see in the pic is half the recipe which served my sis and me perfectly.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for the post, hon, Ill make this again for sure!

      The concept of this recipe sounded really good to me, however for me personally, I have decided I don't like fontina cheese. DH, DD and GS however loved the dish so much that I am giving the recipe 5 stars. Thanks for posting this as I know I will be making it again. And I plan on trying it with a combo of Gruyere and aged extra sharp cheddar. Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.

      I made two versions of this dish, one with cheese tortellini and one with beef tortellini. It's very good. I did have a bit of a problem with the sauce not thickening as much as I would have liked. It seemed to need a bit more flour. The fontina cheese made the dish nice and creamy.
