Caesar Pasta Salad with Flank Steak

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      I love the flavor of Caesar salad - so I've adapted it to pasta as well as main course salads, using either chicken or beef... And made it much lower in calories than the original.

Caesar Pasta Salad with Flank Steak

Total time: 25 minutes
     With the chili powder, Worcestershire and garlic, this has a surprising kick to it... not hot, just assertive.  The creamy Greek yogurt is the perfect foil.
