Quick Beef and Parmesan Pasta

  • Cook 1/2 lb fusilli pasta in boiling salted water (this uses 2-1/2 cups [625 mL] fusilli pasta).
  • In large skillet, heat splash of olive oil over medium-high heat, add 2 cloves minced garlic, half red onion, thinly sliced; cook until softened.
  • Add cooked pasta, some leftover slivered medium-rare roast beef, baby spinach leaves, slivered sundried tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Drizzle with more olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.

Pantry Pointers:

  • Convenience Key: Make Easter’s (or Sunday night’s) roast beef dinner do double duty. Leftover roast beef is the ultimate convenience food!
  • Flavour Hit: Cheeses that pack a flavour-punch are perfect partners for Canadian beef. Parmesan is perfect or try a bold blue, aged Cheddar or gutsy Gorgonzola.
