I don't know if I will ever have enough time to make homemade tortellini! I'm willing to admit that is something I will never make from scratch. I will accept defeat for that, but who knows! So maybe there should not be a white flag waving just yet.
This is an easy, healthy, delicious weeknight meal. This comes together fast all in one dish. Perfect for those busy nights in the middle of the week like tonight!
Spread. Layer. Sprinkle. Repeat. Eat!

2 jars your favorite organic Tomato Basil pasta sauce (like Muir Glen or Newman's)
1/2 C Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 3 Qt casserole or glass dish with olive oil.
2. Spread 1 1/2 C pasta sauce (half of a jar) on bottom of the dish, lay 1/2 of spinach* down and pour 1 bag of tortellini. Note: You can always sub for stuffed shells and ravioli too.
3. Spread 1 1/2 C pasta sauce, rest of spinach*, last bag of tortellini and another 1 1/2 C pasta sauce.
* Kitchen Technique #5- Spinach cooks down much more than you think it will. Even though it looks like a lot piled high now, it will not be when you take it out of the oven.
You know it is a winner when you hear "More please!" Dish up, this dinner is loaded with protein, calcium, lutein, lycopene, Vitamin A & C, folic acid, omega 3's and much more.
