Dressed with a simple vinaigrette made from fresh herbs and a good quality extra-virgin olive oil, this pasta salad is as delicious as it is easy to prepare. The homemade Italian dressing will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days, so consider doubling the recipe to keep some on hand.


  • 2 1/2 cups multigrain rotini pasta (such as Barilla Plus)
  • Italian Dressing
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 1 (6-ounce) package baby spinach
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed
