I tried this with the sweet potato penne. Wish you had recipes included for the sweet potato variety. Pretty tasty salad. Very confusing ingredient list and instructions though. You do not list spinach, green onions or garlic in the ingredient list, but you do in the instructions. I tried it both ways and I like the addition of the three ingredients. I only had red onion on hand since I shopped by the ingredient list. It was good in the salad.
