  1. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook tortellini until just tender, drain, and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F.
  3. Butter 2 1/2-quart casserole.
  4. In a large saucepan, melt butter over moderate heat, add onion, garlic and mushrooms, and stir until vegetables soften and most of the mushroom liquid evaporates, 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle flour on top; stir 1 minute.
  6. Gradually add milk, whisking rapidly, then add half-and-half and whisk until sauce thickens.
  7. Add the wine, season with pepper, reduce the heat slightly, and whisk until sauce is smooth, 5 minutes.
  8. Remove pan from heat, add bleu cheese, and stir until cheese melts and sauce is smooth.
  9. Add the sauce and olives to pasta, toss until blended, and scrape into the prepared casserole.
  10. Sprinkle the Parmesan evenly over the top and bake till bubbly and golden brown, about 30 minutes.
