In a 4- to 5-quart pan, cook tortellini in 3 quarts boiling water just until tender to bite (4 to 6 minutes for fresh tortellini, 15 to 20 minutes for dry); or cook according to package directions.
Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain well again.
In a large bowl, lightly mix the tortellini, Pesto Dressing, bell pepper strips, and shrimp.
Cover mixture and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
