Pasta, Spinach Salad

This is a great and light salad for an evening supper. Furthermore, a clever way to get kids to enjoy the spinach.



Ingredients:
Spirelli pasta
Hand full of frozen Spinach
200g Cottage Cheese
Italian Dressing (I use Kraft)
Carrot and Leek - cut in thin strips
Spring onions - chopped
Pine Nuts - roasted in a pan
Olive oil


Method:
Cook pasta according to instructions. Thaw spinach at room temperature (you can also do it in the microwave). In a mixing bowl add spinach, carrots, leek, spring onions and cottage cheese and mix well. Mix in the pasta, italian dressing and a good shot of olive oil. Lastly, throw in the pine nuts.

Serve with warm garlic bread.

Verdict:
Soeri loves spinach and was delighted that pasta can be served as a salad. Both Soeri and Tom gave this one plus points and wanted to take the leftovers to KIGA and University the next day.
