2 cups uncooked medium pasta shells
3/4 pound cooked deveined peeled shrimp, thawed and drained if frozen and tails removed
1/4 cup sliced green onions

1/2 cup creamy Parmesan dressing
4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

Cook and drain pasta as directed on the package. Rinse under cold water and drain again.
While the pasta is cooking, prepare the rest of the salad. Place the shrimp, cheese and salad dressing in a large bowl. Add the rinsed and drained pasta when it’s ready and toss to combine. Just before serving add the lettuce and croutons and toss again.
