Spicy Spinach and Sundried Tomato Pasta

dsc_0141

I was introduced to this pasta by a friend of mine who love to buy this at the supermarket near our office. It took few trips for me to get a hold of this salad since it is not available all the time. Several times my friend explained to me what it is and how it taste, but there is nothing like tasting the real thing if I am going to make my own version. So I kept on coming back until I finally found it.

I tried it, and I like it. I like the combination of everything in this pasta. The spicy taste that contrast the slight sweetness and saltines is a good match, not to mention the nice flavor that sun dried tomato adds to this salad.

This salad reminded me of a similar salad that my mom used to make for us. It looks simple to me and so I decided to make it. My guess is right, this is a simple pasta , quick and easy to prepare. The addition of Spinach may seem odd to you, but believe me , it works with the rest of the ingredients. This is a nice salad  serve for a get together , or for a snack or lunch to go. Let’s get started!

Instructions:

  3. Add cooled and cooked pasta.
