Had this for Monday night Casserole night and it was a hit. I added mozzarella cheese, and extra parmesan cheese because we're all cheese freaks. Thanks
Everybody loved this! There were no leftovers, sadly! I did bake this in a casserole dish and then put it under the broiler to crisp the breadcrumbs up a bit. We thought the amount of sauce was fine for us, and usually I do double the sauce, but not this time! We will be making this often. Thanks
This was an easy weeknight meal to put together. I didn't have chicken broth on hand so I used water. I also turned the tortellini into a sprayed casserole and baked in the oven. It turned out great. I will make again. Thanks for posting, KelBel. Sue
