Is this a healthy recipe?

How do you get my kids to eat cooked spinach? Serve it with their favorite things–pasta, cheese, and olives–and they’ll be happy. My three love this easy spinach feta pasta salad.

I consider it a pretty healthy recipe since it’s made with wholesome ingredients and it packs a nice punch of nutrients thanks to the spinach!

Is this an easy pasta salad recipe?

This recipe is so easy to pull together. This is my go-to for potlucks and parties, using whatever pasta I have on hand. You can really use any pasta, I love using veggie pasta varieties to add even more nutrition, flavor, and a pop of color.

Can I make this a gluten free pasta salad?

This pasta salad is easily made gluten-free. Just substitute Gluten Free pasta and make sure the Italian dressing is safe as well. Since the rest of the ingredients are naturally gluten free you should be able to enjoy the recipe with whatever kind of pasta you like, even gluten free!

Can I add other vegetables to this pasta salad?

This recipe is so adaptable! Add another vegetable that your family likes or add some cut up cooked chicken to make it heartier.

Spinach and feta pasta salad is a quick, vegetarian meal that's perfect for packing to go. It's always a hit at potlucks and parties!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1/2 lb. Pasta (bow ties are pretty, but I use whatever I've gotten on sale)
  • 1/2 bag Fresh Baby Spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian Dressing
  • Small can sliced olives, drained
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed to remove sodium
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese


  • Cook the pasta to al dente. At the end of the cooking time, tear the spinach into pieces and throw into the cooking water to wilt.
  • Drain pasta/spinach in a colander, and put back into the pot (removed from heat).
  • Add Italian dressing and stir to coat. Add chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, and garbanzo beans.
  • You can choose to toss the feta into the warm salad (it will melt a bit) or serve it on top as a garnish.

    We love having cold salad recipes on hand for swim practice, meets, and more. Cold salads mean that the kids always have something they can take for their lunches, prepare for their own dinner, and the leftovers are great!
