Hi Amazing Kids! I hope you enjoy one of my favorite summer dishes, Sweet Spinach Pasta Salad. I love mixing together fruits and vegetables: Salads taste good and are good for you! This dish combines awesome flavors; grapes provide natural sweetness, and eating fresh spinach is a powerful way to up your vitamin intake. Have an amazing summer!

Hugs! <3 Remmi!
