Pasta Salad (can be served hot or cold)

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cost: $5-$8

1 pound whole grain penne pasta (I usually can find this in bulk cheaper)

1 cup spinach – lightly blanched
½ c parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Variations:
Add chicken if desired, or chunks of tofu
Substitute feta instead of parmesan cheese

    This is a family favorite. I love the colors in this simple pasta dish. There are so many varieties of pasta salads… in the summer I chill this for a while and add tomatoes from the garden. In the winter we eat it served warm with chicken. We like a little extra garlic, so we add to the pesto. This recipe is easily increased.
