Vegan Caesar Pasta Salad

Caesar pasta salad….what a combo! Pasta and crispy salad together? Yeeeess! Lots of crisp romaine leaves and a little radicchio are tossed together in a tasty caesar dressing with pasta, in this case farfalle — plus for a little texture, crunch and flavor a handful of toasted slivered almonds.
