Shrimp, Tortellini, Spinach

This is a quick dish to make and tastes great. The best part is the minimal amount of prep work.

1 pkg refrigerated tortellini
1/4 c Italian dressing
garlic - minced
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes - undrained
3/4 lb cooked cleaned shrimp - I used the frozen kind, size small
6 oz spinach leaves
1/4 c fresh basil - chopped
parmesan cheese

1. Cook tortellini according to package instructions.
2. Heat dressing over medium/high heat. Add garlic - cook 1 min. Add tomatoes and shrimp. Bring just to a boil. Stir in spinach and cover - simmer 1-2 min. Stir occasionally.
3. Stir in tortellini and basil - simmer uncovered 3-4 min. Stir occasionally until sauce thickens.
4. Serve topped with parmesan cheese.
