SAUCY MEDITERRANEAN STEAK & PASTA
Nothing could be easier to prepare than this effortless one pot meal. The pasta
cooks in the sauce. Top with your favourite garnish.
1 lb Beef Stir-Fry Strips or Sirloin Steak, cut into thin strips
1 jar chunky pasta sauce
2½ cups penne or rotini pasta
2 medium zucchini, thickly sliced
Heat a large oiled deep saucepan over high heat. Add beef; cook and stir just
until beef loses its pink colour, about 1-2 minutes. Remove beef from pan.
Add pasta sauce and 1¾ cups water to saucepan; bring to boil. Stir in
pasta, cover and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally for 8 minutes.
Stir in zucchini, cover and cook 2-3 minutes until zucchini is tender crisp.
Stir in beef and heat 1-2 minutes until hot. Garnish with crumbled feta cheese,
grated Parmesan cheese or sliced olives, if desired and serve with salad.
Makes 4 servings.
TIP: Removing beef from skillet while heating sauce and cooking moist
ingredients like zucchini, keeps meat tender and prevents overcooking.
