Love This Lunch: Caesar Salad Pasta

IMG_4441

This is my favorite kind of lunch: a big bowl of gluten-free fettuccine mixed with a big bowl of romaine lettuce tossed with a big spoonful of my homemade Caesar salad dressing.

How did I come with this? I kind of vaguely remember having something like this years ago at The Cheesecake Factory. (Years before I became vegan!)

This is not an exact recipe because I just throw it together but here is how I do it.

Pasta (I like this amazing gluten-free fettuccine)
Romaine lettuce
Homemade Caesar dressing *

* For a less tangy Caesar, leave out the miso! The ingredients are: cashews, water, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, nooch and a pinch of salt.

Cook the pasta.

Cut the romaine into small pieces.

Drain the pasta and place it back into the pot. Add the romaine and a few spoonfuls of dressing and use tongs to toss it all together. The lettuce will wilt just slightly.

Enjoy!
