Penne with wilted spinach & asiago

A great italian-style pasta salad that's versatile--add some grilled chicken and pine nuts for a potluck, or add more vegetables and less cheese for an even lighter fare. Nothing smells better than fresh garlic in olive oil!

Excellent dinner side dish or snacky salad. I make a large batch and keep it for snacking for a week or longer. Chopping is the most time-consuming part of this recipe.
