Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this about 2 weeks ago for my fiance SOOO good! I made this about 2 weeks ago for my fiance SOOO good! I did change a few things based on other recommendations I saw. I used Kraft Italian style dressing as I couldnt find the kind they recommend either. I also used diced tomatoes with garlic & oregeno, I used raw shrimp and threw it in with the tomato. I also added portabella mushrooms & some thin sliced chicken seeing as my fiance eats like a cow! So good-its been requested for dinner again tonight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! AWESOME!! My sister-in-law made this for dinner last nite which we normally make a different Kraft receipe every Friday night. She used about 1 1/2 lbs of uncooked shrimp and doubled the dressing amount. Lots of full flavor from the dressing and garlic! Served with fresh bread and butter on the side. I would highly recommend this receipe to anyone that would enjoy an excellent meal and also a pretty presentation (to impress your significant other!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has got to be THE BEST recipe I have made in a long time. This has got to be THE BEST recipe I have made in a long time. I have made it so many times and my husband and I LOVE it. It's so easy, quick and DELICIOUS. I have substituted the shrimp with canned chicken and it was great. I have also used 1/2 pound of italian sausage, browned and drained and I have also made it without any meat at all. We love this with crusty garlic bread and it even fits into our Weight Watcher life style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was really good and a little different from our normal meals. This was really good and a little different from our normal meals. The kids liked it and didn't even realize they were eating spinach and my husband and I both went back for seconds. I followed the recipe to the t except I added in a tad bit more of the dressing than called for. Also I used frozen spinach instead of fresh and just cooked it on the side and added it in. I will definitely make again and again. Thx!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent quick supper. This is an excellent quick supper. I used whole wheat tortellini for additional nutritive value. I was wary of starting with cooked shrimp. Shrimp gets tough and rubbery when overcooked. So I used cleaned raw shrimp, adding with the tomatoes. By the time the spinach was wilted and tortellini reheated, the shrimp was just right. I am a big fan of turket italian sausage, so I may try that sometime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this the other night and it was superb! I made this the other night and it was superb!! I was tired of same-o pasta recipes and wanted a seafood pasta that was a little different than the usual. This one is very yummy as-is! I didn't add anything extra to the recipe and it turned out exactly like the picture. The only thing I did different was use the shrimp that is already cleaned/no tails and the cheese tortellini that I found was NOT in the refrigerated was with the regular pastas (dry section). I think I will save this recipe for company as well!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was very good and easy to make. This was very good and easy to make. I didn't have the dressing called for in the recipe, so I whisked some crushed red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese into 1/4 c. of Italian dressing and let it sit to blend flavors while I prepared the rest of the dish. Also, I had jumbo shrimp so cut them in 1/2 for easier eating. Next time I will double the dressing as the dish was a bit dry. I served it with garlic bread and a side salad. Watermelon slices for dessert nicely finished the meal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from i SO wanted to love this recipe and just didn't like it! i SO wanted to love this recipe and just didn't like it! i did a little tweaking but the tweaks weren't the cause for my dislike. i marinated the shrimp in the dressing overnight. i did use fresh tomoatoes -- red, yellow and orange -- and got them ripe so they'd be mushy enough for the sauce. it added a nice splash of color and fresh always tastes SO much better. unfortunately, i have never really been a fan of parmesan cheese so i planned on omitting it at the end. apparently it is a common ingredient in cheese tortellini (unbeknownst to me -- dah!) and the taste i don't like came through ever-so strongly! i keep going into the kitchen to try yet another bite, but the parmesan comes through LOUD and CLEAR! everything else was good. maybe i'll try it with a different sort of pasta next time.
