  • 12 oz. bottle of drench Vegan Caesar Dressing & Marinade

  • 1 pound pasta of your choice

  • 5 oz fresh baby spinach

  • 5 oz shaved parmesan (or vegan parmesan)

  • 6 oz cherry tomatoes 

  • Protein options: salmon marinated in drench Citrus Honey Vinaigrette, grilled chicken marinated in drench Mediterranean Lemon or tofu marinated in either dressing/marinade


  1. Boil pasta per directions on the package and then run under cold water to stop from cooking further. 

  2. In a large bowl, “drench” pasta with drench Vegan Caesar; you won’t need the whole bottle since it’s full of flavor.

  3. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and fold into pasta.

  4. Fold in the spinach and 3/4 of the parmesan. 

  5. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan on top of the pasta salad.

  6. Serve with grilled chicken, salmon or tofu! 

Additional recipe ideas: add extra veggies such as broccoli and/or colored peppers or make a Caesar wrap with spinach tortilla, protein of choice, spinach and shaved Parmesan drizzled with drench Vegan Caesar.
