Light & Healthy Lunch: Pasta Spinach Salad

Consider yourself lucky that I'm sharing this recipe! This is one of my MOST favorite and it is so light and yummy!

I love making this salad in a big batch and munching on it for lunch through the week. It also makes a great side dish to BBQ or whatever you've got going for dinner! It's perfect for summer too because you don't heat up your kitchen!

Boil some water and add 6 oz of spiral pasta

While that cooks, in a large bowl mix up tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, green onions, and spinach. 

Once the pasta is cooked and cooled (you don't want to melt the feta) toss together with 1/3C low calorie Italian dressing.


Pasta Spinach Salad:

  • 6oz spiral pasta (I use the garden, tri-colored kind)
  • 2 medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 C feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 C green onions sliced
  • about a can of sliced black olives
  • 6 C torn fresh spinach
  • 1/3 C low calorie Italian dressing
Cook pasta and drain. 
Combine all ingredients and toss to coat the mixture. Cover and chill. 

Did I mention my little man devours it? Spinach and all!
