Caesar Pasta Salad

"TEN MINUTE MEAL: LIGHTENED UP CAESAR PASTA SALAD! Ok so I have made multiple versions of a Caesar dressing/sauce, and this one TRUMPS all of my others as a pasta sauce. I also had some on my salad for lunch yesterday and it was BOMB. Pasta has been in rotation a few times a week lately, because it’s delicious, but also you can make a box and keep in the fridge to add to salads, make a quick meal with and alternate the flavors. I topped this off with some soft boiled eggs for some protein. You can easily make this dairy-free by using dairy free alternatives. Happy Thursday all. Hope you’re having an enjoyable week. The sun is shining and just went for a walk with my little girl, 🐶 Ona. •"
