    Made this last night on the grill after marinating for about 30 mins. Omitted extra olive oil and pasta, and served hot on a bed of spinach. The grated cheese REALLY adds to the flavor. Delicious! Drizzled a little more dressing on top and served with brown rice. - 6/25/08

    I'm not so sure about this. I made it & there was no flavor in the pasta. It was so bland. The chicken was pretty good. I added Italian dressing to the pasta just so I could eat it. I would make the chicken again with different sides. - 7/10/08

    I enjoyed the chicken, but the pasta needed a little punch. I added some of the italian caesar dressing to the pasta to make a sauce, that made it very good! Thanks for the recipe. - 4/27/09

    This certainly doesn't taste like you are trying to lose weight. The only problem when something tastes so good is portion control! At first I was a bit worried what the caesar dressing would do when browned. It (along with the parmesan) acts like a really tasty crust. I will definitely make again! - 3/10/08

    This sounds scrumptous and I will definitely try this. The calories actually aren't high depending on the person's nutrition and workout plasns. For instance Spark's for my dinner have me on a 500 - 600 calorie plan on certain days. Don't let the calories scare you. In order to lose u have 2 eat! - 6/19/08

  • I'm not good at doctoring recipes. The chicken was good, but the pasta was not as flavorful as I expected. Thanks to those who added more dressing. Great idea and it made the pasta better. - 1/4/11

  • No pasta for me, but I have cooked chicken in the oven with both Caesar dressing and Ranch. Everytime I cooked with either of these dressing, I get echoes for seconds. I scan the recipes because I am not an interesting or great cook, but my family survives. - 10/8/10
