�-1 pound of stuffed tortellini, cooked & drained (use your fave)
�-3 tablespoons of butter
�-2 tablespoons of flour

�-4 ounces of room temperature cream cheese
�-1/2 cup of smoked gouda cheese
�-16 ounces of frozen spinach, thawed and drained

1. In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter. When the butter is melted, whisk in the flour and cook for about 90 seconds until the flour taste has cooked out.
�2. Then, add in the half and half and stir well to combine. It’s a good idea to make sure the heat is on high at this point and as soon as it starts to thicken, lower the heat back to medium.
�3. Add in all of the other ingredients except the tortellini and stir occasionally to combine well and to prevent from sticking.
