Instructions

  • Cook the pasta to just below package instructions, reserving 1 cup of the water when straining. The pasta will finish cooking in the sauce so you want them to be less than al dente.

  • In a large pan heat vegetable oil on high heat until shimmering, add 1 tbsp butter and move around until fully melted
  • Add the steaks to the pan and fry 3 minutes per side, remove from the pan and set aside
  • Add the remaining butter and the onions to the pan and saute on medium-high for 1 minute, then add the garlic and saute for another minute
  • add the lemon juice and 1/2 cup pasta water, then scrape the pan for 30-60 seconds.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the milk, stirring to combine. Allow to simmer for 1 minute
  • stir in the parmesan, once absorbed add the tomatoes, spinach and other half cup of pasta water. Cover and cook on medium-low for 8-10 minutes.
  • Once the spinach has fully wilted, fold in the steak and pasta, cover and cook 1-2 minutes
  • Serve garnished with fresh parsley
