Cheese Tortellini and Shrimp

Sometimes you want a good tasty dinner and you want it to be quick. This dish fits the bill. Slice a red pepper and half an onion and then make yourself a cocktail! You can have a cocktail while the shrimp defrosts in cold water. You can also be heating a pot of hot water at that same time.

When you're ready to make dinner, just throw the tortellini in the pot of boiling water and cook according to pkg directions which will roughly be around 9 minutes or so. That's the right amount of time to sauté the red pepper and onion in some olive oil-season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper, throw in the shrimp and stir around. Drain pasta, throw into pan with shrimp mixture, stir and top with parmesan. Enjoy!

1 pkg cheese tortellini (I use Butoni brand)
12 large frozen shrimp, defrosted
1 red pepper, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder
parmesan cheese
