rotini pastacan sub farfalle or fusilli
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, once boiling add 2-3 teaspoons of salt. Add pasta, and cook according to directions on package (10-12 minutes). When done, rinse under cold water, then drain thoroughly.
While pasta cooks, cut your strawberries into quarters.
Crumble goat cheese, set aside until ready to assemble.
In a large bowl, add drained pasta, strawberries, goat cheese, arugula and balsamic vinaigrette. Toss well to combine.
**Cardinal Rule** Since the pasta is cooled after cooking, it will not have carry-over cooking. Make sure you cook your pasta a little more than al dente. No one wants chewy pasta salad.
