Tender New York strip steak tossed with spinach, pasta and a tangy dijon mustard and balsamic dressing.



  • .5 pound New York strip steak
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces of penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon divided
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. In a small bowl combine the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Season the steak on all sides with the mixture and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve a couple tablespoons of the starchy water before draining the pasta.
  3. While the pasta cooks, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Cook the steak for 5-7 minutes on each side (depends on how pink you like it – 7 minutes will be barely pink). Remove the steak from the pan and leave it on a plate to rest before slicing.
  4. Whisk together the remaining olive oil, balsamic, and mustard in a small bowl.
  5. Once the pasta is finished cooking toss it with the dressing, reserved pasta water, sliced steak, parsley, and spinach until the spinach starts to wilt a bit. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons of feta cheese.
  6. Serve the pasta warm, at room temperature, or store it in the fridge to enjoy cold.
