Cook pasta to al dente according to package directions. Drain pasta and rinse under cold water.
In a large serving bowl combine romaine, chicken, and pasta. Pour dressing over salad and mix until combined. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and croutons. Serve immediately.
If you are not serving it immediately toss salad ingredients together except dressing. When you are ready to serve the salad toss salad with dressing and garnish with Parmesan cheese and croutons to avoid the salad from turning soggy.
Save time by buying rotisserie chicken and using that instead of grilled chicken.
Skip the chicken it to make it more of a side dish or switch up the protein. Other options for protein would be thin strips of grilled skirt steak, roasted salmon or grilled shrimp.
Add some cooked chopped bacon and diced tomatoes or sliced cherry tomatoes to make this a BLT Caesar Pasta salad.
