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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, prepare Italian Dressing. Combine dressing and tomatoes in a large bowl. Add pasta and spinach; toss well, and top with cheese.

We really enjoyed this salad. I followed the recipe as written except I used elbow macaroni and I omitted the salt in the salad dressing. I served with grilled salmon. A great summer meal. I will definitely make this salad again.

it doesn't give you the dressing recipe, which is deceiving.Nor does it give you an amount of dressing to use. But a good salad for summer - just either buy dressing or make your own!

Very tasty and "colorful"!
