Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook pasta in water well salted with kosher salt and a drizzle of olive oil, until al dente
  • Rinse well with cold water to stop the cooking process and cool the pasta
  • While pasta is cooking cut tomatoes and olives into large mixing bowl
  • Add red pepper, onion, kielbasa
  • Add pasta when cool
  • Mix together parmesan and a few shakes of garlic pepper and salad supreme
  • Pour about 3/4 bottle of dressing over the pasta mixture, add parmesan mixture and mix all together well
  • ((At this point, I put in fridge over night and finish before serving.))
  • About half an hour before serving, fry bacon and lay on paper towel
  • Tear / chop any stems off spinach leaves
  • Cube cheese
  • Add bacon, spinach and cheese to salad.
  • Stir and taste, I usually add a little more dressing/spices as needed as the pasta will soak up some of the dressing overnight.

    What great timing. I just bought a large basket of mixed color cherry tomatoes and a box of whole wheat penne. Were you following me at the grocery store? Why didn't you tell me top pick up the baby spinach? I love your recipe.-Lori
