Spinach Artichoke Pasta Salad

As soon as I saw this recipe on my instagram feed I knew I needed to make it.  I love pasta salad and spinach artichoke dip so this was a match made in heaven.  We made it this week and it was devoured in 2 days.   If you don’t follow @twopeasandpod on instagram you should- their recipes are always on point!  This is such a great Summer salad.  We ate it for lunch but if you wanted it for dinner it would be great served with grilled chicken or shrimp.  Enjoy!
