Thaw shrimp, and then place in a colander to drain all liquid. Dry off the shrimp with paper toweling, and set aside. Now, place the tortellini in about 2 inches of rapidly boiling water in a medium pot. Return to boiling and boil for 2 minutes. Test with a fork for doneness. It should be chewy, not mushy. Drain, and cover with aluminum foil to keep it hot. Next, melt 1/3 cup butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 chopped green onion, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, and (2) 14-oz. packages of shrimp. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until shrimp turns opaque (white or pink-looking). Add hot, cooked tortellini and ? cup of grated Parmesan cheese to the shrimp skillet and stir gently, but completely. Pour the skillet mixture into a nice serving bowl.
This dish is wonderful with Crispy & Soft Herbed Garlic French Bread! Enjoy!!!
