Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-20 minutes (depending if you cook your own chicken)
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
3 cups of dried spiral pasta

50g baby spinach
250g packed of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of whole egg mayonnaise
1/4 cup of lemon juice

While pasta is cooking, mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice and thyme in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Place in the fridge to cool.
Chop up all remaining ingredients and add to pasta. Drizzle with dressing when cold and toss gently to combine. (Keep wrapped in fridge until serving as it is best cold)
