Was a hit at our church potluck. Might be better with fresh spinach if in season. Also, be careful of the measurements for the dressing. 8oz is enough - some bottles may be larger.

Sounds delicious. Will have to give that a go at my next function. :-)

Since I don't care for the extreme chewiness of penne pasta, I will use a smaller pasta - maybe just plain macaroni. I know we'll love the seasoning and combination of these ingredients.

This was really good. Even my husband liked it, he want back for seconds and even for a snack later at night. And he's a very fuzzy eater.
