110 ounce packagefrozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 ½pounds cheese tortellini, uncooked
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large sauce pan or dutch oven, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add in garlic and cook for a minute. Whisk in flour and cook until flour is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add in milk and salt and increase heat to bring milk to a simmer. Once the milk is simmering, shut off the heat and stir in one cup of mozzarella and the ½ cup of parmesan cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and incorporated into the sauce.
To the sauce, add in the cooked chicken, spinach, bacon, and uncooked tortellini. Stir to combine.
Pour the mixture into the baking pan and sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on top. Cover pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until bubbly.
This is a great make-ahead weeknight meal. Just refrigerate and bake before serving, adding an addition 5-10 minutes to the bake time.
