1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
2 1/2 cups hot cooked farfalle (about 2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta)
1 cup cubed roasted skinless, boneless chicken breast (about 1 breast)
1/2 cup fat-free Caesar dressing
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 (10-ounce) package frozen leaf spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry


Drain tomatoes in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1 tablespoon oil. Combine tomatoes, oil, pasta, and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss well. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until warm.

Note: One 10-ounce bag of fresh spinach may be substituted for the frozen spinach, if desired.
