Ingredients:

Directions:

POUR 1/2 cup dressing over prepared pasta in medium bowl. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

HEAT 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle 1/3 cup cheese into pan, creating an even, lace-thin layer. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until top surface of cracker is pale gold. Remove skillet from heat and allow cracker to firm up for 1 minute. Carefully turn cracker over with spatula. Return to heat and cook for 1 minute or until cracker is golden on second side. Using spatula, transfer cracker to paper towel to drain. Wipe skillet clean with paper towel and repeat 2 times with 1/3 cup cheese each time to make 3 large crackers.

ARRANGE endive, radicchio and arugula on 6 plates. Drizzle greens with remaining 1/4 cup dressing. Top with pasta; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese.

BREAK crackers into smaller pieces and use as garnish. Serve immediately.

Tip: Use a 5-ounce bag of packaged European blend salad greens in place of the endive, radicchio and arugula.
