24 ounce freshly prepared tortellini (I used Member’s Mark found near the cheese at Sam’s Club)

3 grilled chicken breasts (about 4 ounces each,) chopped into small bite size pieces (Sam’s also has great fire grilled chicken breast to save time)

About a pound of cooked salad shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 bunch of fresh asparagus, chopped into bite size pieces

1 red bell pepper, diced

About a 1/4 cup of Italian dressing


Thaw shrimp under water. Toss veggies in a little EVOO and roast in oven or air fryer until asparagus looks slightly crisp. While veggies are roasting grill chicken and prepare tortellini according to package directions.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl with Italian dressing.

That’s it!


Pro tip!

Even better the next day after all ingredients have had a chance to marinate in dressing.
