I do not remember where I got this recipe, but I was intrigued when I saw this. It took me a while to try it, but I was so very glad I did. It's garlicky, cheesy and the romaine gives it a bit of crunch.

How To Make caesar salad pasta

  • 1

    Note: Homemade toasted breadcrumbs Toast several pieces of bread (Make extra at breakfast) and allow to set out 2-3 hours so it dries out completely. Tear into pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse until desired crumb is achieved. (No need to toast the breadcrumbs in the oven, it's already toasted!)
