Pasta Salad by Flamingo Toes

I am always looking for different variations of pasta salad, so this was perfect!

What you need:
1/2 of a 16 oz box of Cavatappi Pasta (you can substitute whatever you've got on hand but I love these little curls)

1 pint of cherry tomatoes

3 slices of bacon, cooked

1/2 bunch of fresh spinach

3-4 oz crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup garlic olive oil

1 teaspoon italian seasoning
a pinch of red pepper flakes - or more if you like it spicy

salt and pepper to taste

What  to do:
Start by cooking your pasta until it is just al dente. You want it cooked but still with a little bite to it.

Refrigerate until cool.

While your pasta is chillin, chop your bacon, spinach and cherry tomatoes.

Once your pasta is cooled, mix in your veggies, bacon and add the teaspoon of italian seasoning.

Add in your garlic olive oil, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste. (Which means keep tasting until you have enough salt and pepper. My favorite step. :)

Fold in your Feta cheese gently.

And that's it!! Soooo easy right?

You can serve immediately or you can pop it back in the fridge until you're ready to eat!
