Pasta Week: Steak & Asparagus Rotini

It's time for a week full of my favorite kinds of dishes: PASTA!! :)

Steak & Asparagus Rotini - a marvelous pasta dish with hearty steak and asparagus #recipe

I have been lucky enough to get a little heads up when my husband has extra duty supervision or staff duty. In September of last year, he was on brigade staff duty for a month and I got into the habit of bringing him dinner and the kids and I would eat with him. A huge thing for us is to sit down together and eat family dinners - it's something that we find extremely important and something that we don't always get to do with deployments and field exercises and what not. I love making quick pasta dishes to tote over to the airfield on those nights where is has to pull duty. Steak is also a great meat to use because it cooks quickly!

What you need:
  • 1 lb. steak
  • 1 lb. rotini
  • 1 lb. asparagus, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. lemon pepper
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cook rotini pasta al dente, adding asparagus pieces in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain.
  2. Season steak with salt, pepper, and garlic. 
  3. Melt butter on high and sear steak. 
  4. Reduce to medium-low; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Then slice into strips.
  5. Toss steak with pasta. Add lemon pepper, EVOO, and Parmesan - toss to coat.
