Three Cheese Tortellini

This was one of my favourite meals growing up and is very much a comfort food now. Plus! All the ingredients are easy to find in Germany.

1 350 gram package tortellini (I prefer a meat tortellini)
1 1/2 cups frozen peas (optional)
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp basil
2 cloves minced garlic
4 tsp flour (1 tbsp + 1 tsp)
1 cup milk
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8 cup casserole dish. Cook tortellini as per package directions. Place peas in bottom of colander and drain pasta over peas. Place pasta and peas in casserole dish.

Melt butter, mix with basil and garlic. When garlic starts to cook, add in milk slowly. Then sprinkle in flour and whisk until thick. Remove from heat. Stir in cheeses. Pour cheese sauce over tortellini and peas and mix in well. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes until bubbling.
