Italian Sausage and Asparagus Cavatappi Pasta Salad

1 pack BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Italian Sausage (hot or mild)
1 cup Greek salad dressing
1 bunch asparagus
1 bunch fresh spinach
1 package grape tomatoes (optional)
1 package crumbled feta
Fresh ground salt and pepper
- In a medium saucepan set to medium-high, cook the sausage until lightly browned.
- In a large pot, cook the cavatappi until al dente and remove from heat.
- Cut off the hard ends of the asparagus and roughly chop into 1-inch sections. Place in a small pot of boiling water and cook until bright green but still crunchy, remove from heat and rinse the asparagus with ice cold water to stop the cooking process.
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and thoroughly mix. Generously season with salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to develop.
