Spinach, Chick-pea, and Olive Pasta
This one-dish meal is an eye-pleasing and satisfying combination of texture and flavor. It's also a great way to enjoy the many benefits of iron- and calcium-rich spinach.
4 ounces dried radiatore or rotini pasta
2 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach (about 2 ounces)
15 ounce can no-salt-added chick-peas, rinsed if desired and drained
1 cup coarsely chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and drained (about 6 ½ ounces)
12 Kalamata olives, drained and chopped
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dried basil, crumbled
2 ounces Feta cheese, crumbled (about ½ cup)
Prepare the pasta using the package directions, omitting the salt and oil. Drain in a colander and run under cold water until completely cooled. Drain well.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients except the feta. Add the pasta to the spinach mixture, tossing gently yet thoroughly to coat. Add the feta and toss gently.
