    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)
