"Very easy, quick meal. I added mushrooms and scallions and omitted thyme. Needed to add parmesan cheese for more flavor. A little bland but overall a good recipe."

"This is a very delicious dish, and also easy to prepare. I added a few sliced Baby Bella mushrooms, and a couple of shakes of Old Bay Seasoning for yet more flavor (since some folks mentioned that they thought this dish was a bit bland.) We liked it with the peas, but next time I'll try using Broccolini (it's not Broccoli...but it's in the same family). We all loved this dish, so thanks for a lovely recipe!"

"Wow - we really loved this. The only major change I made was to toss in pesto (my own homemade) at the end. Minor changes involved changes in amounts of ingredients, such as doubling the amount of tortellini. I used dried tortellini instead of frozen, and added oregano, The question of blandness was taken care of by the pesto. Even my husband was impressed, and said I should make it again soon!"

"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"

MY REVIEW

"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."
