How about a nice tortellini salad? My recipe is very easy. Buy the refrigerated tortellini that your grocery store carries (hopefully you have Buttoni brand) - you should have choices of filling such as 4 cheese, chicken and proscuitto, sausage etc.
Cook the tortellini as per directions, then drain and cool
In a mixing bowl, mix:
2 1/2 tablespoons of pesto paste (brand I buy is Amore - in my grocery store it is in the same aisle as the pasta's and pasta sauce, it is unrefrigerated (until after opening)
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup whole milk ricotta
1 tab. mixed Italian herbs (dry)
fresh ground black pepper - to taste
Then gently fold in the cooled tortellini and refrigerate.
This can be dressed up by adding diced salami or pepperoni, even of cooked Italian sausage, and honestly, I think this would be good with cooked shrimp
