This is a a stripped down version of the classic Caesar salad, involving macaroni to give it some heft. It is very delicious and easy to make.
This was such a great twist on a salad. I took it to a potluck where there were several salads and this was the only one that people were asking who brought this salad. I used bow tie pasta and it was so cute. I also added cherry tomatoes and that was a great addition. - 18 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
very good - although I made so many change it hardly resembled the original recipe. I did keep the pasta, lettuce, croutons and bacon - but I left out the egg and added diced tomatoes and parm/moz cheese. I also used a flavored ranch dressing as I don't love Caesar dressing. One tip for traveling with this dish and avoiding soggy lettuce and croutons is to place the lettuce on top on the pasta mixture and the croutons on top of the lettuce, then mix before serving. - 30 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I added and took out several ingredients to fit our tastes, but the basic idea is excellent! using a good quality caesar dressing makes a huge difference, as i learned the hard way. Also, if you don't eat it all at once, the lettuce quickly becomes wilted and soggy. - 05 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
