  • 3Add pasta, spinach, and all other vegetables and cheese to a large bowl. Toss to combine ingredients evenly.
  • 4Add dressing, about a half cup and toss. This is where you decide how much or how little dressing you desire.
  • 5You could add grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, or grilled tenderloin to make this a main dish. This is a very cool dish for those hot summer days.
