Since baseball season started, we are running like a headless chicken. But we enjoy every moment of it. The only challenge is dinner. We may have a super early small dinner before heading out of the door. As soon as we got back home, everybody feels like eating again, especially having a growing boy. A recipe like this is perfect. You can make the chicken, dressing and pasta ahead of time. When it is ready for serving, it is only assembling everything together.
Combine pasta, chicken and dressing ahead of time and store it in an air tight container. Add pasta mixture on top of the vegetables before serving. This will keep the lettuce fresh and crisp.
Leftover short pasta works well, too.
Croutons is an optional ingredient in this easy chicken Cesar salad recipe. Feel free to replace it with any kind of nuts.
2 bags (9oz each) Pre-Washed and Pre-Cut Romaine Lettuce
1 can (12.5 oz) Chicken (drained well)
1 bag (8.5oz) Ready Pasta (I use the Barilla blend)
1 cup (and more on the side) Store-bought Cesar Salad Dressing
Shaved or Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)
