Autumn Pasta Salad~Lisa Esplin

I found this on Vera Bradley's website. Very easy to make and works well to make ahead of time for an easy dinner. It is a yummy salad and goes great with Parmesan Breadsticks. Enjoy!

1 (16-ounce) box tubular pasta
1 bunch spinach, cleaned and torn into bite-sized pieces
1 large red onion, diced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 small can sliced olives, drained
1 (16-ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
¾ cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain. In a large bowl, combine pasta, spinach, onion, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, feta cheese and Parmesan cheese. Mix well. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, and Parmesan cheese. Pour vinaigrette over pasta salad and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
