  • Boil a large pot of salted water, and cook pasta according to package. Drain and rinse noodles under cold water to stop them cooking. Set aside.
  • Dice the cucumber and tomatoes, slice the peppers into fine bite-sized ribbons, chop the spinach, and add all veggies to a bowl. Add the pasta, and dressing - toss to coat. Squeeze the lemon juice over the salad and toss once more. Add a pinch of oregano, and season with Salt and Pepper if needed! Stir in the cottage cheese and enjoy!!
  • For leftovers - I like to take a quart sized mason jar, fill half with pasta salad, and half with fresh spinach and enjoy for a quick and easy lunch!
