This is a great pasta salad or side dish, perfect for barbecues or a light dinner. Try it with garlic bread.
Fantastic! I've made this a few times and it is always a big hit. I use baby spinach and I don't bother cooking it. I just toss it in. When the spinach is mixed in the salad, the dressing naturally wilts as if it were cooked. I would highly recommend doing it this way. - 15 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Simple and classy - a "gourmet deli" pasta salad. Refreshingly different from the typical mayonnaise based pasta salads. I used refrigerated tortellini, fresh baby spinach, chopped Roma tomatoes and my own vinegar and olive oil dressing. Beautiful colors of the Italian flag! Nicely done. - 08 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Fabulous pasta salad! It's simple and delicious! It's so easy to put together, yet tastes like something you'd find at a gourmet deli. I used fresh tortellini and fresh spinch vs. frozen. I also threw in some roasted red peppers along with the cherry tomatoes and olives. I used shredded Parmesan and for the dressing I chose "Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing" from this site. This recipe is a definite keeper! - 17 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
