It’s not like regular pasta salad – It’s cool pasta salad! This meatless pasta makes the perfect backyard barbeque addition.
- Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add pasta; cook 8 minutes or until al dente, omitting salt and fat. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add red pepper and garlic; saute 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, broth, salt, black pepper, and olives; cook 6 minutes or until tomatoes begin to break down, stirring occasionally. Add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved cooking liquid to pan; simmer 2 minutes. Stir in spinach and basil; cook 2 minutes or until greens wilt.
- Divide pasta mixture evenly among 4 bowls; top with parmesan cheese.
- Serve immediately.
