Lean Green Pasta Salad!(easy)

 This dish is packed with healthy goodness!

Things you'll need
1/2 bag of baby spinach
half a head of iceberg lettuce
1 crown Broccoli florets (raw)
1 small onion
8 pepperoncini peppers sliced(if you don't like them, or don't have any, a shake of red pepper flakes will do)
green olives
2 celery stalks
1 box whole wheat penne pasta
3 oz Feta cheese
Garlic powder
Dried oregano
favorite italian dressing(I use Good seasons all natural italian, it comes in a packet just add, oil,vinegar water)
a few dashes of grated parmesan cheese

Step 1
Start by chopping your iceberg lettuce and throw it in a bowl with the baby spinach

Step 2
Wash your broccoli and chop it into florets, thinly slice your onion, thinly slice the pepperoncini peppers, do the same with the celery, chop up 3 oz feta, add some green olives, garlic powder,oregano and coat lightly with italian dressing.mix it up good!

Step 3
Once the pasta is done, drain it and mix it in with the salad (if you want it warm add it right away) If you want it chilled let it cool so it doesn't wilt the lettuce, take one lemon(make sure to get all the pits out) and squeeze all the juice onto the salad and pasta add any other additional seasonings to taste, this is great warm or chilled, but if you serve it chilled, I suggest taking it out of the fridge and letting it get to room tempeture.
