Ingredients

  • 1

    lb pasta, any shape (I like Radiatore) cooked al dente

  • 1

    envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing, dry

  • 2

    cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halve them if you like

  • 2

    large or 6 hearts of Romaine lettuce, washed, chopped

  • 4

    cups croutons, home made or store bought

  • 2

    cups grated Parmesan cheese*

  • 1/2 to 3/4

    (32 oz) bottle Cardinis Original Caesar Dressing*, refrigerated before using if possible

Directions

Make ahead- if possible, the night before serving: Place cooked pasta in a bowl. Sprinkle with dry Good Seasons Italian dressing and about 1/2 cup of the bottled Cardinis dressing. Refrigerate overnight. The next day, before serving: Place the prepared pasta, grape tomatoes, chopped lettuce, croutons and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Toss with about 1/2 of the bottle of dressing. Let sit for a few minutes, add additional dressing to taste just before serving. -*I usually prefer fresh grated Parmesan, but in this case, I like the bagged grated Parmesan. It holds up better and won't "fade" into the salad. A big bag will last forever, and can be frozen, if needed. Found in the refrigerator section next to other bagged, grated cheese
