I made this lady night and it was wonderful. So easy to make and very flavorful.
Not bad. My husband liked it. He suggested using tortellini stuffed with Portobello mushrooms next time.
Super quick & easy to make. Tastes great!
Made this twice so far. First time followed the recipe exactly as written. This has a nice mild flavor. It was also good preheated for lunch at work. The second time I used tricolored tortellini and used corn & peas. These subtle changes didn't really change the flavor
Anything with shrimp appeals to me. I live in Tampa where shrimp is a local catch, so this recipe is right down my alley.. I have made similar dishes, but nothing with the refrigerated tortellini.. so I just knew this would be a favorite. I added a splash of Greek salad dressing to the pan just before serving, along with a spritz of lemon juice. As a volunteer field editor, I rate this recipe as a five star excellent.
