How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Spinach Bowtie Pasta Salad

From the kitchen of my dear friend Melissa, who makes this perfectly chilled pasta salad for all kinds of summer outings.  From picnics to potlucks, this one will stay at the front of your recipe rolodex.

Directions & Recipe

1 bag of bowtie pasta, boiled & drained
1 bunch of fresh spinach, washed & chopped into thin ribbons or small pieces
1 large can of black olives, chopped
1 1/2 cups grated parmesan
1 8 oz bottle of light ranch plus about 3 tablespoons of milk

There you go.  Prep it all up, dump it all together.  Toss.  Chill.  Enjoy.
