Enjoy this delicious pasta. Weekend special !!
400 g rump/fillet steak sliced into slivers in a bowl. Add black pepper, salt, 1/2 tsp dried thyme or 2 sprigs fresh thyme, 1/2 tsp Italian herbs. Add spring onion spice, coat the steak with olive oil until well coated. Cover and set aside in fridge for 1 hour.
Cook 3/4 packet of your favourite pasta according to instructions. I used Fattis and Monis Penne Rigate. Reserve some of the water for thinning the sauce. Drain then set aside.
In a large saucepan sauté 1 chopped red onion, 2 tsp garlic and chilli paste, 2 seeded small green chillies ( optional ) in 2 tbsp olive oil. Add 3 Red Jalapeño chillis, add 1 bottle (400 g) Pepperdew green pepper and garlic pasta sauce, simmer for 2 mins. Add 1 small tin tomato paste, 1/2 tin diced tomatoes, 2 tbsp tomato ketchup, 2 tbsp lemon juice, pinch of sugar, 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley. Simmer on low adding 1 cup of reserved water from pasta for 10 mins
Grill your steak slivers in a grilling skillet for 2 mins. Then add to you pasta sauce. Throw over the pasta, stir altogether add 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and stir through. Serve immediately with a mixed salad and crusty bread. Dig in !!
