Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad

Caesar salad is my all time favorite.  Something about the chicken and the creamy dressing sets me over but then to add warm pasta?  It is heaven on earth and the all time perfect light dinner.  The bowl was being scraped down at the end of the night.  You will not be ashamed to have seconds.

2 Cups Romaine Lettuce
1 Box Penne Pasta, Cooked
1 Tomato diced
1-2 Cups Croutons, depending on size
1 lbs Chicken Breast, cooked and cut into strips
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Basil
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/3 Cup Caesar Dressing
Parmesan Cheese, Topping
Olive Oil

Cut chicken into strips and then cut the strips in halves.  Place chicken into pan with oil,pepper,salt,basil and garlic and cook until done.

While chicken is cooking start the Pasta.  Cut up the lettuce and tomatoes and place into bowl.

Drain pasta and place along with chicken into bowl of salad.  Mix in croutons and dressing and top off with Parmesan cheese, serve right away.
