I was looking for something to eat for supper and browsed what I had on hand and I came up with this recipe. I have posted this on a local TV stations website and now it has gone national.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook tortellini as directed on package. Meanwhile, thaw the frozen shrimp in a colander using cold running water. Remove the tails. If using uncooked shrimp, devein and remove tails and then sauté in a teaspoon of the butter. Remove shrimp and set aside. Do not overcook. In a saucepan combine butter, heavy cream, and cream cheese. Simmer this until all is melted, and mixed well. Add the Leeks, Parmesan Cheese and garlic powder. Simmer this for 15 – 20 minutes over low heat. Toss the tortellini with the shrimp and sauce, coating well. Add the parsley or chives and serve.

Not a fan of shrimp, but I tried this and loved it!

Made this tonight and it was a hit. My son really wanted scampi and was upset at first when he saw this but after eating it he was very satisfied. I didn't add leeks since i didn't have any but it tasted great. I added a little more cream cheese as well since I wanted to finish off what I had left. At first it was a little lumpy and seemed runny but after adding the shrimp and tortellini in and letting it sit for a few minutes it thickened and became really creamy. We served it with homemade bread sticks, green beans and cantaloupe for dessert.
