Caesar salad spaghetti combines all the flavors of a homemade Caesar dressing in a Carbonara-style pasta dish. It’s decadent, creamy, and super easy to make!
Think of this recipe of a mash up between a Caesar salad (minus the lettuce) and Spaghetti Carbonara.
Yes, there are egg yolks involved.
Don’t be scared.
As you know, the egg yolks add to the creaminess and do cook through because of the warmth of the pasta and the pasta water.
Another scary ingredient for some of you, anchovies.
Again, don’t be scared!
All it does is add a salty and briny taste.
I love a good Caesar salad. I have even morphed it into a chicken sandwich.
You need to make a Caesar salad dressing from scratch at home.
Go, right now, and do it!
Start with No Crumbs Left Whole30 Caesar dressing.
Caesar salad spaghetti is built around salty pasta water, grated Parmesan cheese, anchovies, Dijon mustard, garlic, lemon juice, and egg yolks.
It isn’t a lot of ingredients.
Sauté the garlic, mustard, and anchovies in olive oil while your pasta water boils.
Mix in a cup of the pasta water along with the lemon juice and cheese.
Mix it good!
Use tongs to transfer the spaghetti to the pan. Toss to combine.
Remove the pan from heat and mix in the egg yolks.
You may need to add another cup or half cup of reserved pasta water to the sauce if it stiffens up too much.
I like to add more cheese, lots of black pepper, and fresh chopped parsley to the finished pasta.
This pasta is heavy.
A small portion goes a long way.
I do have a vegan Caesar dressing recipe. I am not sure how it would be on pasta though.
Let me know if you try that out!
This recipe is a little bit of work for a big bang pay out.

You can reheat the leftovers in the microwave or in a skillet over low. Add either a bit of water or stock to the dish before heating. That should loosen the sauce up a bit. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
