Caesar Salad Bites in Parmesan Cups

I started thinking about Caesar salad the other day.  I love a good Caesar, although it's remarkable how frequently a Caesar is relegated to a shadow of its ideal self: Less than crisp romaine lettuce, drowning in heavy bottled dressing and topped with a Parmesan-like cheese that more closely resembles the stuff in a green can rather than the shavings off of a block.  And the croutons!  It's almost too much to bear.
