  1. 1

    Boil the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes.

    Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.

    While pasta boils, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off zucchini, halve lengthwise, and cut into 1/4” half-moons.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    Cut cheese into bite-sized pieces.

    Pat steak strips dry. Coarsely chop, then separate pieces.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steak Strips

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steak strips and chile and cumin rub to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer steak strips to a plate. Rest, 3 minutes.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to cook steak strips to medium heat.

    Add zucchini and 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Stir occasionally until starting to brown, 2-4 minutes.

    Add tomatoes, garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until tomatoes begin to release juices, 1-2 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce, Add Pasta, and Finish Dish

    Add cream base, 1/4 tsp. salt, and half the reserved pasta cooking water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, add cheese pieces, one piece at a time, stirring after each addition, until melted and combined.

    Add pasta and steak strips. Stir until combined and heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    If sauce is too thick, add additional pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Add lemon juice and stir to combine. Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with cilantro. Bon appétit!
