Pasta Salad Awesome Town

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

A pasta salad filled with so much awesomeness, even a doctor's warning is required.


Warning: What you are about to read may cause sudden heart palpitations due to the simplest of ingredients and little to no effort on your part. Other symptoms may include heavy weeping, rooftop singing, neighborhood street dancing, repetitive fainting and a paralyzed shock face. See your doctor immediately if you experience any side effects after the reading of this post.

Wow. I'm almost afraid to even show you now. Oh heck, let's live on the edge, shall we?!

It's pasta salad season and I'm telling you WHUT, this one is a dooze-a-roozy. It comes together in a kiss of minutes and tastes like a pot of gold landed on your tongue.

We have some hearty spinach, cheese tortellini, Muir Glen fire-roasted tomatoes, some artichoke hearts, fresh basil and a pinch of garlic salt.

Ingredients for Pasta Salad

Give your spinach a rough choppidy chop chop.

Drain the tomatoes, like so….

And pat them dry! Fun little trick, eh?

Pat Dry Tomatoes

You simply boil the tortellini for a few minutes, drain and rinse them under cool water. Then toss it with the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach, basil leaves and the pinch of garlic salt!
