"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, however I have modified it to suit our tastes with great results."

  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Very yummy and super easy. Love the idea of using creamed spinach as a shortcut. Thank you.
  5. 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.
