Spinach & Sundried Tomato Pasta Salad Salad


Uh, Jaime … you’re title is messed up, you wrote salad twice …

Yup that’s right, I did, and it’s not a mistake either. It’s a pasta salad salad. A pasta salad with a heaping helping of greens. Or a salad with some pasta in it, whichever you prefer. I played with the idea of this last week as a way to get in some extra protein and whole grains into my salad without adding too many points. It was love at first bite. This is a slightly Italian version with tomatoes and basil. It’s a great light lunch.

Ingredients:

  • 28 grams Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil, I use the oil the tomatoes are packed in
  • 12 grams Sundried Tomatoes, chopped
  • 50 grams Baby Spinach
  • 75 grams Salad Greens
  • 50 grams Red Pepper, chopped
  • 55 grams, about 8, Grape Tomatoes, halved
  • 30 grams, about 8, Black Olives, halved
  • 2 to 3 Basil Leaves, chopped
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta cooks, whisk vinegar and oil together.
  3. Toss all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
