Bowtie Spinach Pasta recipe. Healthy, easy, delicious! From

I am having some serious issues with my back (if you saw on Instagram) and am drugged up in bed (not as fun as it sounds, I promise), so I enlisted the help of Stacie, our health and fitness contributor to share this incredible Bowtie Spinach Pasta recipe. Take it away, Stacie!

This recipe is perfect for the athlete and mom on the go.  It has your leafy greens, bowtie pasta for carbohydrates, and sweet peppers for a pop of color! I often eat this salad during training because it does not sit heavy in my stomach but it fills me up! Enjoy!!

Pasta Ingredients:

  • 8 C. Spinach Torn
  • 8 oz. Bag or box of bowtie pasta cooked and cooled.
  • 1 Bunch of green onions chopped.
  • 1/4 C. parsley chopped (I use fresh, but dried is okay)
  • 1/4 C. Salted sunflower seeds.
  • 1/4 C. Red peppers chopped.
  • 1/4 C. Yellow peppers chopped.


  • 1/2 C. Olive oil
  • 2/3 C. Soy sauce
  • 2/3 C. Vinegar
  • 6 TBL. Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper
  • 1/4 C. Sesame seeds

For best results, marinate chicken and dressing over night. (I don’t always remember to marinate the chicken and it turns out just fine).


Boil and shred 4 large chicken breasts and marinate in large storage bag with dressing.  Meanwhile, mix all the pasta ingredients together in a bowl. Pour chicken mixture over pasta ingredients when ready to serve! Serves 10-14
