I would serve this to company! My husband loved it. I used 1 lb. of frozen tortellini, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese (I did not have mascarpone or cream cheese) that I whizzed with a stick blender, most of a bottle of sauce, 1/2 tsp. of dried thyme and 1/4 cup of parsley. Mixed everything up, put it in the oven, and when almost done topped it with about 1/4 lb. shredded mozarella and 1/4 cup shredded asiago. Not exactly the recipe as written but close. I do not think smoked mozz would have enhanced this recipe. In fact, I said to my husband that I would have added a little liquid smoke if I wanted barbecued tortellini. He basically said "Yuck!". Better than "lasagna" made with ravioli. Not entirely healthy because of all the cheese--but definitely use low fat cheese!--but meat free.
