Add macaroni pasta to everything you love about a classic Caesar salad, and here you have it! Romaine lettuce is tossed with Caesar dressing, hard boiled eggs, bacon, croutons and macaroni for an unusual version of a beloved salad. Makes a lovely light lunch, or add barbecued chicken fillet for a quick and yummy summer dinner.
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 US | 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 US | 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 US | Canada)
