I didn't really do any measuring of these ingredients except for the pasta itself. But:

2 cups rotini pasta
2 handfuls of fresh spinach leaves
2 tomatoes, cubed
approx 1/2 cup frozen peas
approx 1/2 to 3/4 lb smoked salmon, sliced into bite sized pieces
1 avocado, cubed

about 1/3 of a package of Philadelphia onion and chive cream cheese
One little single-serve cup of Ranch dressing (2 oz)
lime juice--lots?
dash garlic powder
dash black pepper
dash dried cilantro
1/2 inch or so of wasabe paste from a tube.

Mix cream cheese in a bowl, adding lime juice until it becomes a bit easier to mix (it does not become thin per se, but it is not as solid as cream cheese alone). Add the ranch dressing packet, wasabe and spices. Mix until blended and set aside.

Cook pasta and peas on the stove (in separate pots). Before draining the pasta, but after boiling it to al dente, take it off the heat and wilt the spinach in the pasta water for about 5 minutes or until it starts looking wilty. Drain peas and pasta and spinach into colander and run cold water over it to cool everything down. Add drained pasta/peas/spinach to a big bowl and then add avocado, tomato and salmon. dollop the dressing in and mix until everything is coated. Serve immediately.

Came out pretty good for an "OMG what to make tonight" recipe. And I didn't have to go out and buy any ingredients or anything.
