So, I should probably stop calling this “recipe of the week” since I haven’t been doing it weekly, but I aspire to, so I’ll leave it.  🙂

Anyway, those of you who know Allison or me, might know that we do a weekly lunch exchange.  One week she cooks, one week I cook, and we both end up with yummy and somewhat healthy food to bring for lunch a few times a week.  Which greatly reduces both of our stress loads.  So, in the summer it tends to be pasta salads, which are cool, refreshing and offer tons of flavor possibilities.  But even so, it seems we are both looking for new recipes to try.  I found this one last week and it’s definitely a “make again” recipe.  Of course, I editted it, but the original recipe is here: 

Spinach Pasta Salad

12 ounce package of farfalle (bow tie pasta) cooked according to directions on box, drained and cooled

2 cups diced turkey breast

10 ounces of baby spinach rinsed and torn into bite size pieces

4 ounces crumbled feta with basil and sun dried tomato

1 small red onion chopped

2 large tomatoes diced

1 15 ounce can of black olives halved

2 tsp. minced garlic

1 small bunch of fresh basil chopped

1 cup creamy Italian dressing

salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and chill for a couple hours before serving.  Yum!!!
