Summer Rotini Salad

Like many of us, we would like to eat healthy, but sometimes it seems so difficult.   Summer is a busy time for all of us, but it is also the time when a huge variety of vegetables come into season.  So here is a simple way to incorporate your veggies into a 12 minute meal!


  • Whole Wheat Rotini Noodles
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 red tomato
  • 1 yellow tomato
  • 1 Tbs of itallian dressing, oil, or butter
  • salt to taste


Cook the whole wheat rotini noodles as directed on the package.  Usually 11 minutes to cook these babies.  Mean while, tear/cut up your 2 cups of spinach and put in a bowl.  Dice/chunk the red and yellow tomatoes.  Add to the bowl.  Next add your whole wheat noodles.  Now put on 1 Tbs of dressing/oil/butter and salt to taste.

Look – your done in only 12 minutes 🙂  AND you could go crazy with this idea… think peppers, onions, green onions, etc.  But if you think you can’t go without meat, serve this as a side dish or cut up a chicken breast and bacon to mix in.
