Made this semi -homemade meal on the fly, getting ready for work. It was done in 50 minutes. While tortellini and rice cooked, I prepped the shredded cheeses and onion/pepper mixture. You can omit the Haberno cheese and add a full half cup of paremesan, but the amount is so small it's not really hot, just an under current of heat. I hope you like it if you decide to try it.
