I recently saw a recipe on The Cozy Cook's site for Chicken Caesar Pasta – obviously it was high in carbs but I found the idea VERY intriguing! I already have a low carb chicken Caesar salad recipe on my site, but I want to delve a little further into this new idea. Here's what wiki says:

A Caesar salad is a green salad of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, garlic, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper.”

To convert it to a low carb pasta dish, I skipped the lettuce and croutons – but I have pretty much worked everything else into the dish – as the pasta I'm using contains egg! It's from Great Low Carb Bread Co, and I chose rotini because I thought that it would hold the sauce really well.

You can buy it from the company direct, or it is also available on Amazon (check out this four-pack of different pasta shapes!). I've been enjoying both bread AND pasta from this company for years!

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Caesar Pasta

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add the low carb pasta. Reduce to a simmer and cook for ten minutes or until done to your liking. Meanwhile, dice or thinly slice a chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper.

Add some olive oil to a large skillet and cook the chicken until cooked through. 

While the pasta and chicken is cooking, make the sauce by combining mayonnaise, heavy cream, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste, garlic paste, Dijon mustard, and lemon juice together in a bowl. By the way, you could lose the garlic, mustard, and/or lemon from the sauce if needed or preferred – but I think that the Worcestershire and anchovy are essential!

Drain the cooked pasta and add it to the cooked chicken (remove any excess grease from the chicken first if necessary). Add the sauce and some chopped fresh parsley, and mix well.
