Wonderful, flavorful summer salad. I usually add more cheese. Great with other pasta shapes too.

Funny, the photo shows the dish topped with bacon bits. That's exactly how I make it. For those having trouble getting the spinach to wilt, try this. Prep all ingredients first. Cook the pasta according to directions. When you're ready to drain the pasta, drain off a littler more than half the water. Put the spinach in the colander and drain the remaining water and pasta over it. Drain thoroughly, combine remaining ingredients, top with crumbled bacon (optional) and serve.

I did this as a side dish with pork and the family loved it. I did wilt the spinach.

I used the smoked sun-dried tomatoes - YUM!, and next time will double the amount. I did as a previous reviewer suggested and didn't soak the tomatoes, but next time I will soak them for 10-15 minutes. I added some shredded chicken for my boys and they liked it too. A keeper.

I have made this recipe my own over the years.I add olives, toasted pine nuts and usually use feta. I have added leftover chicken or crumbled bacon or artichoke hearts. I have made it with tortellini. Always good. I never measure anything except the pasta. When I remember, I fish the garlic out before serving--it is potent.
