Have you ever found yourself trying to choose between a pasta entree or a delicious steak for dinner? Why not have both! This Creamy Steak and Pasta dish is the perfect solution to that dilemma. This is one of my all time favorite meals and I love to enjoy it on my birthday! Your mouth will be watering just thinking about the yummy steak served over creamy and delicious pasta.
To start making this delicious meal, I first seasoned 2 strip steaks with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a generous amount of Kinder’s Buttery Steak seasoning. Feel free to use your favorite steak seasoning! Next, in a medium-sized skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add in two tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Place the steaks into the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes on each side to achieve a medium steak. While the steak is cooking, continue to baste them with the melted butter and oil. Once your steaks are cooked to your liking, pull them out of the skillet and set aside while tenting them with some aluminum foil.
Now we move onto the pasta portion of this recipe. Boil a pot of water and add in a 16 ounce box of pasta, cooking it according to the directions. I love to use Rigatoni for this recipe. Back in the same skillet you used to cook your steaks, add 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and 1 cup of chicken broth in. Lower the heat and add in 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of parmesan cheese. Season this with 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, ½ teaspoon each of oregano and thyme and ⅓ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes and stir together well. Continue to stir the sauce while it is cooking until it reaches your desired thickness. You can also add a little bit of the pasta water to the sauce to help it thicken and to help it stick to the pasta.
Once your pasta is cooked, drain it and add it into the sauce and stir to coat the pasta. Dish out as much pasta as you want for each serving on a plate then slice up the steak into thin slices and add it on top of the pasta. I love to sprinkle some extra freshly grated parmesan on top to finish the dish off!
This creamy steak and pasta recipe is one that I could eat anytime! It is so good that you won’t want to share with the rest of your family. Any recipe that has pasta in it, my two boys love. This is the perfect meal to make for a loved one or for yourself for a special occasion. Try this recipe out, I hope you enjoy it!
