You Have To Try This Recipe!

so as you can tell, I've been on a roll in the kitchen!
a healthy kitchen i might add!
friday night i made a spinach-pasta salad.
so very good!
i must share!

let's start with the recipe for the vinaigrette itself. it can be used lots of ways.

1 1/2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
1 TBSP white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, minced

combine ingredients stirring well with a whisk.

easy peasy!

now, for dinner, i cooked some bow tie pasta, added some baby spinach, and tossed in the vinaigrette. awesomeness.
the recipe called for sliced red onion as well, but i don't care for onions, so i didn't include.

here's the exact measurements:
1/2 cup pasta
3 cups baby spinach - uncooked
1/4 cup red onion (optional)

other variation:
you could mix the vinaigrette and spinach on top of a baked potato with feta cheese crumbles for 225 calories. Haven't tried this one yet, but i might!
