Tortellini Cheese Bake Dinner

I am always looking for simple dishes the boys love for dinner. It's hard sometimes to find things they both will eat. I stumbled across this very easy and simple Tortellini Bake dish a few years ago and have saved it for when I needed a go-to meal. It was a hit and the boys have been enjoying it ever since.
