How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
Stir together dressing and next 4 ingredients in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute and 20 seconds to 1 minute and 30 seconds or until warm, stirring at 30-second intervals.
Combine hot cooked pasta and red pepper strips in a serving bowl. Pour dressing mixture evenly over pasta mixture. Top with croutons, and serve immediately.
*Dried porcini mushroom tortelloni or refrigerated three-cheese tortellini may be substituted.

This recipe is worth a try. I wasn't able to find the asparagus and ricotta tortelloni, so used three cheese instead. It needs something to cut the richness if using cheese tortellini- perhaps romaine lettuce, spinach or fresh asparagus. I will probably cut the dressing in half next time.
It's a very good recipe. I added two chicken breasts. I didn't use specified tortelloni. Instead I used one bag of spinach and ricotta tortelloni and one bag of three cheese tortelloni. I would also add a little more dressing if it sits awhile or if you have leftovers.
