It has been so hot the last few days that I thought it time for something really delicious and perfect for the heat. Use this Ceasar Pasta salad as it is or add a little chicken and always use plenty of parmesan shavings. You can also add your other favorite salad items like baby corn.. you get the idea, make it to your taste. The dressing is the most important part of this recipe and you must not leave anything out or it just aint right. You need a hand blender or blender of some sort. (4 people)
What you need
200g shell pasta cooked (get the largest shells you can find)
1/2 pack, 125g bacon chopped and cooked
1 Cos lettuce
2 hard boiled eggs quartered
2 small avocados chopped
Parmesan shaved with a potato peeler
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard (granular)
3/4 cup olive oil
8 small anchovy fillets
Make the Caesar dressing by adding all of the ingredients except the oil to your belnder and whizzing until smooth. Then start adding the oil in a constant stream while blending until it thickens up.
Make up your salad ripping the lettuce into bite size pieces, add the bacon, pasta shells and avocado then toss. Now add the eggs, drizzle over the dressing and shave a whole heap of parmesan over the top.
If you are using chicken toss it in with the avocado.
It’s a beautiful thing…
For a really fantastic change add 2 cooked chicken breasts that have been chopped up for a fabulous, chicken caesar pasta salad.
