Ham Caeser Pasta Salad

Ham Caesar Pasta SaladI love Caesar salads.  When I lived out west, I’d hit Albertson’s grocery stores for some of their deli Chicken Caesar Salads whenever I could.  Then I’d fight my husband for the last bits.  As a meal, though, it isn’t hearty enough for my crew.  These teens crave more carbs than leaves.  So for the family, it’s a Caesar pasta salad.Ham Caesar Pasta SaladI have made this with chicken and ham. Both are great.  It’s almost too easy to post a recipe, but sometimes easy is best.  During the busy summer months when we are off in fifty different directions, it’s nice to have a quick meal in mind to throw together.  Plan ahead and make the pasta in the morning and put it in the fridge to chill until evening.  Toss it with a dash of oil to keep the noodles from sticking together.Ham Caesar Pasta Salad
