Even if you don’t like salads, we bet you like a caesar salad. This recipe replaces croutons with wholemeal pasta for a more filling and fibre-rich meal that you’re sure to enjoy.


Wholemeal pasta, dry

110 g, (penne variety)

Skinless chicken breast

250 g, cut into thin strips

Cos lettuce

1 baby, coarsely chopped

Cherry tomatoes

200 g, halved

Reduced-fat caesar dressing

2 tbs

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, turning occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Toss lettuce, tomatoes, pasta and chicken in a large bowl to combine. Divide between 2 serving bowls. Spoon over dressing and season with salt and pepper to serve.
