Spinach Pasta Salad

3 Comments

Ifound this recipe in one of my gazillion cookbooks ~ Settings Sunrise to Sunset ~ it’s just a little bit different from most pasta salads, it’s easy to make, and delicious to boot.  I would think that you could use any type of pasta that you liked.  The original recipe called for spinach fusilli but I used the three color rotini instead and it worked great.  I adapted the recipe to make it easier to put together.

Spinach Pasta Salad

1 pound pasta of your choice ~ I used three color rotini
1/4cup chopped red onion
3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
1 cup ripe olives
3 cups spinach, sliced into ribbons
12 ozs. feta cheese

Dressing:
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsps red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to the directions on the box and drain well. Add the onion, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and spinach and toss to mix the ingredients. Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk to blend well. Pour over the pasta mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle the feta cheese over the top and mix lightly.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.

Happy Cooking!

  2. I love to make pasta salads to take in the cooler for summer picnics and for a summery lunch in the middle of winter. I think I will make it with multigrain pasta and add some chicken.
