- 350g fettuccine
- 500g sirloin steak
- 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- Black pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
- ½ cup parmesan grated
- 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
- 4 cups baby spinach
- Balsamic glaze
- Bring a large pot of water to boil on the stovetop. Salt the water and add in the pasta, cooking it according to package directions until cooked al dente. Once ready, drain the pasta and set it aside.
- Lay the steak on a plate and season both sides with the extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook the steak until it is done how you like it (rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well, or well done) Once done, transfer it to a plate and leave it to rest for 10 minutes. Once rested, slice the meat thinly.
- To make the Alfredo sauce, add the butter to the skillet, allowing it to melt. Add in the garlic and cook this until fragrant, which will be around 1 minute. Whisk in the flour and cook for another minute. Add in the milk and allow to simmer for 5 minutes, until it has thickened.
- Add the parsley, parmesan, some salt, and some pepper to the sauce. Pop in the tomatoes and allow to cook down for a further 2 minutes.
- Once the tomatoes have cooked down slightly, add the pasta to the sauce and toss it together well until all coated. Add in the spinach and toss this until the spinach is wilted.
- Lay the sliced steak on the top of the pasta and drizzle the balsamic glaze over the top.
Can I Eat The Pasta The Next Day?

It would be a shame to let this delicious meal go to waste, so in order to keep it fresh, seal any leftovers in a plastic container and place it in the fridge. The pasta and the sauce might dry out slightly when you heat it up, but you can add in some cream, water, or milk to give it some more moisture.
