Spinach & Basil Pasta Salad Made Easy


Of course I use the new pasta cooker from Tupperware that makes my life easier http://www.emanthetupperwareman.com   so I do not have a ton of pots to clean up later or a colander since it is all in one so I sort of skip those two steps… This original recipe called for bow-tie macaroni which I would have loved to have made it with but was out…so I had to settle for spirals…

Pasta Salad

16 oz or two cups of pasta

6 0z of spinach leaves or 1 pkg of frozen chopped spinach thawed

2 cups of fresh basil leaves (I thought this was a little excessive so I added less)

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or what you have) I am certain it won’t tell if it was not extra virgin

3 cloves of garlic minced or equivalent in jar

4 oz or 1/2 cup of prosciutto or bacon, diced

salt and ground black or white pepper to taste

3/4 cup (freshly) grated Parmesan cheese

(Optional) 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts…I do not add due to people having allergies…

I added a small amount of Italian Dressing as it seemed dry

Check out my video to start and stop this at your leisure so that you can dance while making  and enjoy seeing how it is made prior to making.
