Happy Hump Day, everyone!

I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I shared with you a recipe from Surprise Recipe Swap or SRS for short.

This month I was assigned to make a secret recipe from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! blog written by Amber a culinary graduate.

It was such a hard decision because Amanda has so many mouthwatering desserts (my weakness) , but since I am trying to get my

family healthy again I thought it was a great idea to try dinner salad instead.

I founds recipe for delicious looking CAESAR PASTA SALAD  & I was all over it.

Caesar Pasta Salad

CAESAR PASTA SALAD turned out perfectly ….. my boys loved it ….. I did however make little changes to fit our taste.

This is my version of CAESAR PASTA SALAD  adapted from Dessert Now, Dinner Later!

Caesar Dressing:
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt (original recipe  – mayo)
  • 2 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pure or light olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • 1 1/2 cups Small Pasta ( uncooked)
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce (torn)
  • 5 Crispy Bacon Strips (chopped)
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  •  Parmesan Cheese

STEP 1: Prepare dressing by combining yogurt, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, salt & pepper in a blender & process until smooth.  With blender running on low speed, slowly pour olive oil in a steady stream just until fully incorporated.  Place dressing in refrigerator until ready to use.

STEP 2: Cook pasta according to directions on package.  Drain & then rinse the pasta under cold water until pasta is no longer warm.  Drain thoroughly.  Place pasta in a LARGE bowl.

STEP 3: To the bowl of pasta add torn lettuce, bacon, cherry tomatoes  & Parmesan cheese.  Drizzle with prepared Caesar dressing & toss lightly with salad tongs.

As I said I made little changes like using bacon & cherry tomatoes instead of croutons ….. Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise …

skipping seasoning mix to coat the pasta, but the CAESAR PASTA SALAD  was absolutely delicious ….
