Yum, YUM, yum!!!
Once upon a time I was at a church potluck thing and I was munching away at the different things I had put on my plate. When I came to this salad, I am not kidding, I stood up and said, "Ok, who brought this? I need the recipe!!!"
Yes, it is that good I stood up and requested the recipe in the moment.
My husband wants me to add that this is one of his favorite pasta salads!
Ok here are the details:
(It is so simple are you ready?!?)
First important detail:
this salad is a 2 day salad so plan accordingly!
1 pound of pasta cooked and drained
2 packages of envelope pesto sauce-mix with water and oil according to package instructions
I let this sit in the fridge until cooled then I add my cheese. It makes sense if you add the cheese while it is hot the cheese with just melt and that is not what you want
¾ cup Feta Cheese
Combine these ingredients and put in refrigerator overnight.
Next day add:
1 cup Ranch dressing with ¼ cup milk-combine these two ingredients in small bowl and whip, then pour mixture over pasta noodles and stir with a wooden spoon (or a spoon that isn’t going to mutilate your beautiful pasta noodles)
The recipe calls for a package of baby spinach-I just bought fresh spinach and chopped up as much as I thought looked good
4 tomatoes diced-I strongly recommend Roma Tomatoes-again I just eye ball it
So simple and a total crowd pleaser!!!
