One Pot Steak Pasta

There is something comforting about making a one-pot dinner.  Just like a sheet pan supper, one-pot dishes are made conveniently without all the extra pans and dishes.  Here’s the thing.  With the right amount of liquid, pasta doesn’t need to boiled in a separate pot because it will absorb all the liquid needed.  If you’re looking for a super simple dish to make for the family, this one-pot wonder is the dish for you.

Steak Pasta

The inspiration for this recipe came from the latest edition of the Cooking Light Magazine.  I’ve only cooked with Bucatini Pasta a handful of times and knew this recipe would be perfect with a few adaptations.  Bucatini Pasta has a thin hole that runs through the middle of the noodle, which picks up sauces and makes sure that each noodle is coated.  Bucatini Pasta can be found in most grocery stores in the noodle aisle but if for some reason you cannot find it, a long macaroni noodle or thick spaghetti noodle can be used in place of it.

 Mainly, this dish uses fresh ingredients and the perfect pan-seared steak for added protein.  The pasta absorbs the liquid and adds a nice light flavor to the dish.  This recipe is light and meant to pick up the fresh vegetable flavors in each bite.

One Pot Sun-Dried Tomato and Steak Pasta

This dish is so easy to make that I wish all my dinner’s could be a one-pot meal.

To make this recipe, start by flattening the steak with a rolling pin.  Then chop it up and add to hot oil.  Sear the steak then remove from the pot.  Add in the chopped sun-dried tomatoes until they have a slight color to them.  Remove tomatoes and place into a small dish with the steak then add the minced garlic to the pan.  Carefully pour in chicken stock and add seasoning.  Place pasta noodles in the pot, giving it a stir once the noodles have sunk into the liquid.

Meanwhile, slice the heirloom tomatoes in half and cut basil into ribbons or chop parsley if using.

With a little pasta liquid at the bottom of the pot, add in pesto and paste then give it a good stir to coat everything well.  Once the liquid in the pot has disappeared, stir in steak, sun-dried tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, parsley/basil and grated cheese.
