Creamy Caesar Chicken Pasta Bake

Another night and yet another meal thrown together on a whim because I thought the ingredients would go good together. Meals like that are such a favorite around our house.

This turned out every bit as good as I thought it would. It was creamy and rich, but not overpowering. The flavors blended together perfectly. The dressing lent a subtle flavor to the whole dish. Perfect!

  1. What a wonderfully simple recipe. It’s hard to beat quick, easy and delicious, especially when the finished dish looks so very good. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  2. I make something similar with chicken broth in place of ricotta and croutons on top. Yum!! Remember to make two and ‘feed the freezer’

  3. This was good and makes a lot, but I thought it was a little too dry. I would add another cup of the dressing. Would make a very nice dish to take to a potluck; very pretty.
