Caesar Salad with Tortellini

asparagus_saladThis salad makes a delicious light summer meal. You could add leftover chicken and add a crusty whole-grain roll to make a heartier meal. Yet another recipe that I’ve had for years, so I can’t provide the originator.

Caesar Salad with Tortellini – Serves 4


3    tbsp    Fresh Lemon Juice
1 ½    tbsp    Olive Oil
1    tsp    Anchovy Paste
1    clove    Garlic — minced
9    oz    Cheese Tortelini — Cooked and drained
2    tbsp    Water
1 ½    cup    Asparagus — sliced and steamed
12    cup    Romaine — torn
¼    cup    Parmesan Cheese — grated


Combine first six ingredients. Combine tortellini and asparagus and toss with 2 tbs lemon juice to coat. Toss lettuce with remaining dressing then add tortellini mixture. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
