This turned out quite excellent, although I made a number of changes.

Penne instead of bow-tie pasta. I left out the carrots and replaced the spinach with some romaine lettuce tossed at the end. I created my own version of a Caesar salad dressing (see link below for the recipe).

The sugar snap peas are a brilliant addition, adding a lovely sweet crunch to the salad. I browned the strips of chicken breast in a hot skillet and then added a tablespoon of the dressing in the last minute of cooking.

Plating was romaine (very very lightly dressed), then the dressed sugar snap peas then I topped it with the dressed chicken and added some crumbled bacon to top it off.

Without the bacon it really isn't a Caesar in my opinion.

why does the spinach look like lettuce? cheftom

Jeff, we did use lettuce instead of spinach, and it worked deliciously well.
