Whole wheat and spinach goodness!
Whole wheat and spinach goodness!

This dish is a family favorite.  We adapted it to a whole foods plant-based diet by using 100% whole wheat pasta and leaving out the usual olive oil and feta cheese.  Be sure to use olives packed in water, not oil.

Ingredients:

Box whole wheat bow-tie pasta, cooked according to package directions

2 Pounds fresh spinach

1 (12 oz) Can black olives, sliced in half

1 Cup Balsamic vinegar

2 Tablespoons cracked black pepper

Using the water saute method, saute the spinach in a large pot until just wilted.  Combine in a large bowl with the pasta.  Add the black

olives, balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper.  Toss to combine.  Chill for 1 hour before serving.
