Chicken Caesar Pasta

A while back my camera decided to die.  It kicked the bucket.  Bought the farm.  Went to camera heaven.  I don't know.  Maybe it's stuck in camera purgatory.  It wasn't that great of a camera.  So being camera-less is seriously cramping my blogging style.  How is one supposed to take pictures of everything they make and eat without a camera?  So while I beg my husband for a new one, and decide what kind of camera I want to buy I've been using my daughter's old camera and the camera on my phone.  Which will explain why these might be the worst blog pictures you've ever seen.  But the recipe is good, I promise.  It's light and if you love Caesar Salad, then you'll love this dish.  I simply marinated some chicken breasts with Italian seasoning and baked them to go with this.  (Only because Mr. Devilish Dish was too busy watching baseball to fire up the grill.)  Top it with chicken or even shrimp if you'd like.  Try not to look too closely at the pictures, just look at the recipe!
So light and tasty!
Next time I'm adding some
chopped flat-leaf parsley
for color!
