4. Toss the Pasta: Combine the pasta, tomatoes, chickpeas, spinach, and dressing. Toss well to coat.

To Serve: Divide pasta evenly between 4 serving plates or bowls. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pro Tip:

Get the most juice out of a lemon by microwaving for 10 seconds or rolling it between the palm of your hand and countertop before squeezing.
Spice it Up!: Up the Greek flavor by adding a little chopped fresh mint and oregano to the dressing.
