Ingredients

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over the stove and add the pasta. Cook until al dente, ~8 minutes, or according to package instructions. Drain in a colander and rinse immediately with cold water.
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients, and whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, pepper, and salt.
  • Combine the cooked pasta, drained and chopped artichoke hearts, chopped spinach, parsley, and the dressing in a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
  • Store the salad in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 60 minutes before serving (you can keep it in there for a longer time too). You can also eat it right away, but I prefer it cold. Enjoy!

Notes

This recipes makes a lot of pasta salad, so it's best for a large crowd or party, but it also stores well and can be enjoyed for several days. If you want to make a smaller amount, you can cut the recipe in half.
