Notes

This fresh and colorful dish is perfect for bringing to a picnic. The best part is that you can make any number of adjustments based on what you have on hand - use any long skinny pasta or any greens you have in place of the spinach. If you have them on hand try adding 1 cup of chopped peanuts to this.
