Spinach Pasta Salad with Asiago Cheese

This is an easy pasta salad to toss together. 
It can be a light entree or side salad 
if you need to bring something.
I cut the recipe in half for us.
Use freshly grated Parmesan and Asiago cheese.
We're having some for lunch today.

Spinach Pasta Salad with Asiago Cheese
6 C cooked penne pasta 
1 bag fresh spinach-8-10oz.
3-4 T olive oil
4 Roma tomatoes, cut up
2 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 large)
generous salt and pepper to taste
3/4 C grated Asiago cheese
1/4-1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
Toss it all together.
Refrigerate if made ahead.
Can add chicken or shrimp
