This warming meal is quick cooking and filling. Pair with a side salad, crusty bread and a glass of Chianti.
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly oil an 8 by 8 2-inch baking dish.
Whisk the sauce, mascarpone cheese, parsley and thyme in a large bowl to blend. Cook the tortellini in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, about 2 minutes. Drain. Add pasta to the sauce and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. Top with smoked mozzarella and Parmesan. Cover and bake until the sauce bubbles and the cheeses on top melt, about 30 minutes.
