Hi, I'm Devra Garteinstein with Quirky Gourmet. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a lemon poppyseed pasta salad. Now poppyseeds are a great ingredient to use with pasta salad. They just, you know because they're so small they kind of get all over the pasta and they're nicely distributed and they have a great flavor. They go really well with lemon so I'm going to start with Rotini pasta which is a spiral pasta. It comes from the same root as rotate because it goes around and around. I'm going to use some fresh spinach, this clean spinach as well as some poppyseeds. I'm going to dress this with some fresh lemon juice, some olive oil, some salt and some black pepper and I'm also going to use a little bit of chopped red pepper to give it some extra color. You want to eat this pasta salad really soon. It's not one of those pasta salads that can sit in your refrigerator for three days because the spinach will wilt and it won't be nearly as appealing. So there you have a lemon poppyseed pasta salad.
