Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

This was the perfect thing after a hot day. Satisfying but refreshing. Totally acceptable as a one dish dinner. I found this on thecreativityexchange.com

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

Ingredients;

16 oz Package of Penne Regate (or whatever you’ve got, I used orecchiette) Pasta Cooked Al Dente and cooled
2 Cups Shredded Cooked Chicken (rotisserie chicken makes this extra easy but I threw mine on the grill)
4 Cups Finely Sliced Romaine Lettuce (Cut about 1/2 inch thick strips)
12 oz. Caesar Salad Dressing
1 Cup Shredded (not grated) Parmesan Cheese
1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Cracked Pepper

Directions;
Begin by tossing the caesar dressing, and pasta together until the pasta is coated. Next, add the shredded chicken, garlic salt and cracked pepper and continue to mix. Next add the parmesan and reserve a little to top each serving. Keep in mind that the mix will look like way too much dressing but once you mix in the lettuce, it’s the perfect ratio.  Be sure and wait until you are ready to serve to toss in romaine (so that it stays fresh).
