I was dubious about the boxed tortellini and almost subbed in fresh refrigerated, but since I'd already bought it I figured wth--and oh, it *really* surprised me. It was delish. I had 16oz of shrimp, simply because that was the size of the bag, and it made quite a difference to use raw frozen (I'm lazy and usually use precooked frozen). The shrimp didn't get rubbery or chewy at all, as they have a tendency to do. I made this salad too, just to stretch the supper (green salad, too, but that hardly needs a recipe) and it was unexpectedly good--it was like a supergood church lady potluck dish, but not overly sweet or gloopy, a little bit tangy and refreshing. The boys hoovered it up.
