    bert's Note:

    You can use either fresh or frozen tortellini. The cooking time remains the same for either one. This is one terrific recipe I found in a milk calender here a few years back.

      My family, who loves cheese, really enjoyed this super cheesey casserole.I left out the thyme and used mozzerella cheese instead of the cheddar. Combined with the cheese tortellini,this was an instant success!Thanks for a great recipe.

      I enjoyed this meal, but thought it was a bit too "cheesy". Perhaps if I had used the meat tortellini instead of the cheese ones it wouldn't have been so overpoweringly cheesy.

      I agree with BC Jewel. The flavor of the sauce was great, but it was just too much cheese.(and I love cheese!) I couldn't finish my serving, but my daughter liked it. I guess we just prefer our cheese tortellini with butter and Parmesan.
