"A rich and creamy casserole that is quick and easy to put together and to complete the meal add garlic breadsticks and a caesar salad. The original recipe source was Meals.com, however I have modified it to suit our tastes with great results."

"My son and I loved this, and fought over the last few bites! Here are the changes I made, to accomodate our tastes, what I had on hand, and 2 mouths to feed: 1/2 of a 19 oz. pkg frozen cheese tortellini, 1 9oz. pkg. creamed spinach, 1 handful shredded mozzarella, NO mushrooms, 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic, several twists of pepper, 1 lg. regular tomato, parmesan cheese to cover casserole, a couple of shakes of red pepper flakes, AND about 1/2 cup chopped, cooked bacon (cause my son really likes it!). I used a round casserole dish (1 1/2 qt). This variation had a lot of flavor, and was a terrific one-dish meal...thanks for the idea!"
"Easy and good enough for guests. Did not use mushrooms, hubby hates them and I had to use 2 cups of drained canned diced tomatoes, but no other tweeks. Loved it"
"This was soooooo good. I used canned drained tomatoes, extra cheese, and I put chopped cooked bacon on top half way through cooking. This is a keeper! Next time I will precook the mushrooms as the were a little under cooked."
"Very yummy and super easy. Love the idea of using creamed spinach as a shortcut. Thank you."
"This was flavorless and we didn't care for it at all. I didn't eat it, my husband gagged it down, our 2 year old didn't eat it, and we sadly threw out the entire tray to the trash. The only slight difference is I used a lower fat creamed spinach (Green Giant) rather than Stouffers. Maybe Stouffers was more flavorful. We won't make this again. Expensive to make with disappointing results."
"I made the creamed spinach myself as I can't find the pre-made in our local store, but this was delicious! I didn't think my picky kids would eat it but my teenage son ate half the pan himself! I forgot the tomaotoes the second time I made it, but it was still good!"
"I've taken this to two potluck and got raves at both. It's easy, travels well, and tastes great!! Thanks Tweeky!!"
"Yummy! This recipe is pretty flexible and very easy to fix. Very colorful, would be a great dish for company or a pot luck. Used only 16 oz. mushrooms and mozzarella though I think I'd prefer the kick of jalapeno jack next time. Loved the fresh tomatoes mixed in and on top. Would add more garlic, and might try stirring in a can of artichoke hearts. Thanks for sharing your recipe!"
"This got rave reviews at a party I just hosted. Thanks for the recipe!So easy to make...and I made a huge pan for 15 people. VERY easy, and VERY tasty!"
"This is an awesome recipe! It makes excellent leftovers too. Next time I'll add more tomatos and chop them coarsely (I used a chopper and the pieces were too small), and I'll add more garlic. Excellent combinations!"
"I'm not going to rate this recipe because I cut the recipe in half when I made it, so I could of messed something up, I just wanted to say it was good, but kind of on the dry side."
"THIS WAS GREAT!! Served it with grilled chicken for a baby shower and at a book club. NONE LEFT OVER at either event! Great flavor and SO EASY!! I'll make it again and again! Thanks!!"
"This was something the whole family enjoyed! I made a few changes. I did not add the extra cheese, topped with toasted bread crumbs, and on half of the dish added chopped hot cherry peppers (for my husband and me). I broiled for a few minutes.I'm going to have to keep the creamed spinach on hand, since this recipe is a keeper! Roxygirl "
"I can't give enough stars for this recipe. It was outstanding. I added 2 extra cloves of garlic and I mixed in the parmesan cheese and then sprinkled some extra on the top. Aside from that, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was a perfect 5 stars!"
"This is our new favorite casserole! Great and easy to prepare - everyone devours this! Thanks!"
"Delicious and easy to make. A winner."
"I forgot to check the number of stars on my previous rating."
"Yummy Yummy for our TUMMY!!!! Easy to prepare and kids like it too! Thanks Tweeky! Great Barbeque side dish!"
