Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

This week's recipe is a Pinterest inspiration.
I love caesar salad and this recipe, with the addition of pasta, is the perfect blend of salad and pasta for summer!!
See original Pinterest pin here.

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad


1 1/2 chicken breasts, grilled
6 oz. penne pasta
4 cups romaine lettuce, chopped or shredded
1/2 med. size cucumber or 2 small ones
1 roma tomato, chopped
2-3 green onions, chopped
1 carrot, shredded (I chopped up baby carrots)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup croutons
Caesar salad dressing, to taste

1. Cook pasta according to package. Drain water, rinse with cold water and set aside to cool.
2. Chop grilled chicken in to small chunks.
3. In a large bowl, toss together the veggies, pasta, romaine, chicken, parmesan, and croutons.
4. Add caesar dressing to taste and enjoy!

This salad has great flavor and crunch! 
I wasn't so sure about how I was going to like the addition of the pasta but I loved it!
So did my hubby! And it made great leftovers!! My co-workers thought I had bought it at the store.
