WOW!! I can not even express in writing how good this pasta salad was!! I am a picky vegetarian who lives in a house full of carnivores and everyone LOVED it!!!!! The only thing I added was a bit of melted butter right before serving! It was superb it was excellent!! Thank you!
My husband can be a picky eater at times so when I told him the ingredients to this recipe he was skeptical. After the dish was prepared and served he ate 2 bowls and couldn't stop raving about it. Delicious! Will definitely put into my recipe rotation. Thanks!
This recipe needed a little punching up but it was an AWESOME base to start from thanks! I sauteed some green onions with the garlic (in a couple of tbsp more oil than called for) along with a bit of crushed red pepper then added fresh spinach to the pan and cooked until it was wilted. Added the contents of the pan to the bowl of drained pasta and then added cheese/dill/salt/pepper per instructions.
I made this for a "Mediterranean" party last evening & it was a hit! I was hesitant about the spinach so I only included enough to add color & texture/dimension to the dish. Other changes: Tortelini instead of rotini (be careful when stirring & slightly undercook to retain shape). Added chunks of grilled chicken marinated in a mixture of lemon-pepper olive oil lemon juice touch of balsamic minced & powdered garlic dill Included sun-dried tomatoes marinated artichokes olives Topped with toased pinenuts. I like to make pasta salads a day in advance to allow the flavors to meld. This usually means I end up needing more "dressing." In this case I simply used some previously reserved marinade (described above) & it did the trick. The varying colors/textures were beautiful...next time I might consider adding diced cucumbers &/or orange or yellow peppers. Adding some yogurt might be an option for a nice creamy version...may try that next time as well. Thanks Marian for getting the ball rolling with this "spinach version"....it's a keeper!:)
really good. i read some of the reviews and it said that theirs turned out a bit bland so i added about 3 tablespoons of mayo to it to give a boost and it turned out great. really good warm but being chilled because company is coming over.
My husband loves this salad cold and I love it warm. A variation is to add more spices to the spinach after is drained (vegeta) more olive oil or a TBS of Olivio calamata olives instead of regualr black olives and sotee green onions or a red onion with the garlic.
moving-out-of-apartment-use-up-what's-in-my-cabinets-recipe: used whole bag spinach added olive oil sliced olives grated parmesan instead of feta and of course plenty of sea salt no dill - turned out terrific!
