This dish is so easy to make, and very tasty!! I love the texture of tortellini, and when I decided to add some shrimp to the dish, that made the texture "party" even better! If you like pesto, you will enjoy this dish! If you have never tried pesto, give it a whirl!

This may be my pot luck dish for the next few occasions!

How to Make Quick Creamy Pesto Tortellini

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook tortellini according to package directions and chill.

    Use whatever variety of tortellini you prefer.
  • 2Combine remaining ingredients and add to chilled pasta.
  • 3Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
  • 4I had some small frozen cooked shrimp and decided to add them to the salad. It was an excellent idea, if I do say so myself! I would think you could add cooked chicken, turkey, tuna, whatever you'd like if you chose to.
  • 5If plating it for serving, you may want to put tomato slices around it or enhance it with a vegetable of your choice, but it is not necessary. I chose tomatoes because it is fresh tomato season right now, and I can't get enough of them!
