Spinach & artichoke pasta salad

It has been one hot summer so far here in my part of the world, Ontario, Canada.  Most days it is not even enjoyable to be outside and you definitely do not want to have to turn the oven on. I miss the summers where humidity wasn’t such an issue! I’ve been wanting to create more pasta salad recipes because they are simple, oven-free (with exception to boiling the pasta for 10 min) and so tasty! I decided to turn my favorite dip into a salad, this spinach and artichoke pasta salad was DELICIOUS! A new favorite in my house for sure, my husband also raved about it. Makes 16- 1/2 cup servings at 2SP on blue & green and when using whole wheat pasta it’s just 1SP per 1 cup serving on the purple program.
