Tortellini is pasta shells filled traditionally stuffed with ricotta cheese. The pasta is sometimes stuffed with meat or vegetables. Pasta dishes are usually prepared with asparagus, mushrooms, meat, poultry, or seafood. This recipe follows the same method, with a surprise ingredient, white wine.

We used Noubess Fish and Seafood Seasoning to season the shrimp. We completed the meal with fresh garlic, onion, Italian green beans, and sundried tomatoes—a dish filled with exotic flavors for a simple and delicious weeknight dinner.
