Didn't have dried tomatoes instead chopped a whole tomato and cooked with shrimp and garlic. Had a container of pesto on hand. VERY GOOD. Read More

I added a lot more shrimp because my wife and I enjoy the shrimp but overall the recipe was good. I also used about a tablespoon of pesto instead of the recommended amount. The pesto seems to be there for look and texture more than flavor but put the amount you want or think is enough. One last thing I couldn t find sun-dried tomatoes so I just got a large tomato and diced it. I ll try and tweak the recipe in the future and it made for a nice lunch before work. Read More

This is a great recipe to mess with! I've made it twice and the only thing that stayed the same was the tortellini and the shrimp (needed to get them out of the freezer)! I didn't use pesto either time - the first time I shredded fresh basil and the second time I used dried. Both times I sauted fresh veggies that needed used up - zucchini red and yellow peppers what was left in a jar of roasted red peppers etc. I added dried red pepper flakes for more flavor. This has become a go-to dish at our house. I might try it with chicken the next time... Read More

This is an easy and flavorful pasta dish. My husband doesn t care for sundried tomatoes so I chopped some fresh tomatoes for his portion and used sundried for mine. Everyone enjoyed it. Read More

Changed it up just a little. Used a whole package of peeled and deveined shrimp then soaked shrimp in lemon first then drained lemon juice off and used Irish butter to sauté shrimp instead of olive oil. Doubled the sundried tomatoes (I like the kind packed in oil) added fresh spinach and garlic salt and finally made my own pesto to add to it. We kept the extra pesto on the side for those who really love pesto. It was so good that everyone was cleaning the sauce from the plate with their bread. Read More
