Cook bowtie pasta based on the box instructions. Sprinkle salt while pasta is cooking for taste. Once pasta is ready, drain water out of the pot and set aside.

Rinse spinach and fill the mason jar about halfway. Add bowtie pasta until you reach the neck of the jar. Top off your salad with sunflower seeds and ricotta cheese and any additional spinach or pasta.

Drizzle Italian dressing. Close your mason jar and shake it so the dressing evenly spreads. Serve chilled.
