Very flavorful with the crunch of toasted pine nuts. This one I copied after trying some at a local deli. It turned out great. Try it, you'll be making this often!

  1. Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al-dente; drain.
  2. Cut tomatoes in a thin slice (julienne) and place in a salad bowl, along with pasta, spinach leaves, pine nuts, and capers; mix well.
  3. Stir together olive oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper and pour over salad, tossing to mix and coat evenly.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving to combine flavors, and chill.

Deelish! I made some changes, but I still think it deserves five stars. Ohh, the pine nuts with sundried tomatoes! Love them!! I omitted the capers and only used a couple tablespoons of olive oil (don't love the strong taste of extra-virgin). I also added extra spinach; I actually am going to eat leftovers over a bed of spinach leaves, it's just easier ;-) Thanks for a simple, yummy pasta salad!
