Chicken & Noodle Caesar Salad

This stuff was a huge hit at Jaarrr's birthday party, and is uber easy!

1 box farfalle noodles
2 bags grilled chicken strips
1 bag romaine lettuce leaves
1 bottle Asiago Caesar dressing (Briannas' Home Style is our favorite)
Parmesan cheese (grated and/or shredded)
Croutons (Caesar style)
4 diced tomatoes (optional)

Note: The proportions are estimated.  You can really do whatever suits your fancy and it can't go wrong.

Boil noodles until soft.  Drain and rinse.  Bake chicken strips on a cookie sheet (covered in aluminum foil) at 350 for 15-20 minutes.  Wash, tear, and spin lettuce leaves.  Assemble noodles, chicken, lettuce, dressing, parmesan cheese, croutons, and tomatoes and mix it all together in a large bowl.

I usually leave a few chicken strips, some tomatoes, croutons, and a little of parmaesan cheese for the top so it looks pretty!:)

See!  Totally easy and a makes a great side dish at any party.  Enjoy!:)
