Chicken Caesar Salad Pasta Toss



The only type of Chicken Caesar Pasta I've made has been in the form of a cold pasta salad. Given that it's extremely cold and windy today, I decided on trying something different and making a hot pasta instead. Boy, I am so glad that I did! This pasta was so good and easy too. I also managed to lighten it up a bit to make it healthier. A win-win in my book!

Ingredients
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and sliced (I grilled mine)
12 oz. short pasta of your choice, cooked to just shy of al dente
2 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup light caesar dressing
1/2 cup croutons
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Juice of one lemon

In a large saucepan over low heat, combine the hot pasta, spinach, and lemon juice. Cover. Once spinach is cooked, stir in the Caesar dressing. Toss in the chicken, croutons, and grated cheese. Enjoy!

  3. Ooh, this sounds really nice. I like the idea that it's a hot pasta salad, that really mixes things up a bit.
