Easy and delicious - Serve with a grilled entree for a full meal.

Servings: 8 servings

• 1 -12 ounce package farfalle or bowtie pasta
• 10 ounces baby spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
• 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese with basil and tomato*
• 1/2 small red onion, chopped
• 1 - 15 ounce can black olives, drained and chopped
• 1 cup fat free Parmesan Italian-style salad dressing
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 lemon, juiced
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta until al dente, rinse under cold water and drain.

In a large bowl, combine the pasta, spinach, cheese, red onion and olives.

Whisk together the salad dressing, garlic, lemon juice, garlic salt and pepper. Pour over salad and toss. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve chilled. (Spinach will wilt after longer periods of time - still tastes good though)
