Pasta, Chicken & Spinach Salad

This is another recipe I got from Kenzi Hardy...it's fresh and light, but still substantial. And it has a little bit of Asian flair, which I like.

Pasta, Chicken & Spinach Salad

3 cups shredded chicken
1 pkg (12 oz) rotelle or bowtie pasta
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 T sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion
8 cups fresh spinach

Cook pasta; drain.
In small frying pan, combine 1/4 cup oil and sesame seeds; saute until golden. Cool.
Stir in remaining oil, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and salt/pepper. Pour over cooked/cooled pasta and chicken, toss. Chill 2 hours or overnight.
Before serving, add spinach, onions and parsley.
