Pasta Salad w/ Spinach & Pine Nuts

Pasta Salad w/ Spinach & Pine Nuts

This is a concept - not an actual recipe w/ ingredient amounts. I've had this salad somewhere and wrote down what I thought was in it so I could replicate it. Here goes...

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cook time:15 Minutes


  • Tubular pasta cooked, a little more than al dente
  • Paul Newman's Caesar Salad Dressing shaken, right from the bottle
  • green onions finely chopped
  • celery finely chopped
  • baby spinach rinsed & dried
  • pine nuts toasted


Prepare pasta. Drain. Place in prep bowl.

Prepare onions & celery. Dump onto pasta.

Mix in enough Newman's Caesar dressing to wet well.

Arrange the baby spinach leaves on a serving dish or on individual plates

Spoon the pasta mixture in the middle.

Garnish with toasted pine nuts.

Serve immediately or chill for later serving - the flavors will be best at room temp.

Chill any unused portions for late-night eating :-)

Experiment w/ adding additional ingredients that will enhance but not overpower the other flavors...
