Tortellini, Chicken, and Arugula Salad

I saw this recipe in the latest magazine.  I showed to D and he said ok.  We have been slack going to the grocery store, so I went after work to pick up the ingredients, while he texted me to let me know what we did and didn't have.

Anyway, about 10 minutes after I got home, dinner was ready (he may have started boiling the water while I was at the store).  The taste was good, and a bit light.  D made it 3 servings, although I think I could have done 4.

We would have again, especially for how fast it was.

YIELD: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

1 (9-oz.) pkg. refrigerated cheese tortellini (such as Buitoni), cooked according to pkg. directions (ran under cold water to cool down after cooking)
8 ounces skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast, shredded (about 2 cups) (used breasts and sauteed)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup thinly sliced shallot
3/4 ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved (about 1/4 cup)

Place tortellini and cooked chicken in a large bowl.

Combine garlic and salt on a cutting board. Mash with the side of a knife to form a paste. Place in a small bowl. Add oil, rind, juice, sugar, and pepper; stir with a whisk.

Add 2 tablespoons dressing to tortellini and chicken; toss to coat. Gently fold in arugula, shallot, and remaining dressing. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese.
