1 pound farfalle (bowtie) pasta
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes*

1 can (2 1/2 ounces) sliced black olives, drained
1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 garlic cloves, minced*
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups baby spinach, slightly chopped
1/2 cup chopped, fresh basil
