TORTELLINI SPINACH CASSEROLE

2 packages (10-oz each) frozen cheese tortellini

1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms

1 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 cup butter, divided

1 can (12-oz) evaporated milk

1 block (8-oz) brick cheese, cubed

3 packages (10-oz each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

2 cups (8-oz) shredded part-skim mozzarell cheese

Cook toertellini according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper in 1/4 cup butter until mushrooms are tender.  Remove and keep warm.

In the same skillet, combine milk and remaining butter.  Bring to a gentle boil; stir in brick cheese.  Cook and stir until smooth.  Drain tortellini; place in a large bowl.  Stir in the mushroom mixture and spinach.  Add cheese sauce and toss to coat.

Transfer to a greased 3-qt baking dish; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted.
