This hearty pasta salad is full of chicken, creamy Caesar dressing, crispy romaine lettuce, bacon, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. It’s a complete dinner in one bowl.
This recipe was inspired by my BLT Pasta Salad – I was craving a Caesar salad, but wanted something heartier… the addition of pasta, chicken and bacon was a winner!
By using leftover cooked chicken or a store-bought rotisserie chicken, this recipe comes together in just 20 minutes. Fry your bacon while the pasta is boiling or use packaged bacon bits or pieces (be sure to use real bacon, not the imitation kind).
How many people does this serve?
This recipe yields approximately 11 cups, so it feeds 6 as a meal or even more as a side dish (it’s perfect for potlucks and cookouts!).
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yes! However, to prevent the bacon and lettuce from getting soggy, I’d prepare the pasta salad without the bacon and lettuce. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, then toss in the bacon and lettuce just before serving.
