Spinach Basil Pasta Salad

I had  a dinner party!!  It was great; wonderful people and scrumptious food.  We also played a mean game of aggravation.  My team was so close to winning.  So close!!!!  But alas, we lost.  I call for a rematch!!

This salad was great.  A wonderful light dish.  I especially enjoyed the parmesan.  But really what doesn’t go well with parmesan?
