Spinach Rotini Pasta Salad

This is a delicious and very filling spring and summer time meal. This recipe comes from the back of the Heartland Whole Grain Rotini box. You can add or take away many different ingredients with this recipe. I've seen red onions and even strawberries in this dish. Olives are another idea. This was definitely a hit with my husband and four year old! MMM!

Spinach Rotini Salad

12 oz Heartland Whole Grain Rotini
4 oz fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Italian dressing (any oil based dressing will work)
3/4 cup tomatoes, diced
4 oz pepperoni, julienne (I use turkey peperoni if I use meat in the recipe)
8 oz Cheddar cheese, shredded (I use Mozzarella, it has less fat)
salt and pepper to taste

Cook rotini according to package directions. Rinse with cold water and drain. Combine all remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add pasta and mix well.
