Recipe of the Week!

This is a recipe I made over the weekend to have along with cheese and crackers as a little bite to go with some wine! Very good and very easy! Could be doubled or tripled to take to a pot luck or an event!

Spinach and Pasta Salad

1 9 oz package refrigerated linguini
5 Cups fresh torn spinach leaves
1 Cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1 Cup halved thinly sliced red onion
1/4 Cup toasted pine nuts
1 container prepared pesto sauce
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Prepare pasta according to package directions.
Combine pasta, spinach, tomato, onion and pine nuts in a large bowl.
Combine pesto, lemon juice, salt and pepper in small bowl. Add pasta mixture, serve immediately or refrigerate.

Sounds good! I make a very similar recipe using tortellini rather than linguine. It's such an easy dish to make and I think it's a perfect summer dinner.

This looks so good, I really like cold-pasta dishes so I would totally go the refrigerated rout! Thanks for sharing!
