  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and cool the pasta with cold water.

Notes

Of making this the day prior, add tomatoes the day you will be serving.
This is delicious left over as well, simply add some additional Caesar dressing to moisten it as the pasta will suck up some of the dressing overnight.
