A note about serious food allergies

Cream and tomato go together like nobody's business: fresh acid plus dairy to cut it makes for many a culinary chemistry equation. But don't put the beakers away just yet: the heat of the red pepper flakes plus the pungent garlic plus the fresh spinach also combines for something new and amazing. Better living (and eating) through chemistry.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, breaking into smaller pieces and cooking until heated through, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, cooking until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta into a colander. Set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop tomatoes. Coarsely chop spinach. Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steak Strips

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer steak strips to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook steak to medium-high heat. Add cream sauce and half the pasta cooking water (reserve remaining to adjust consistency) to hot pan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, add pasta and garlic salt. Stir occasionally until sauce starts to thicken, 1-2 minutes. Add steak strips, spinach, tomatoes, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until spinach wilts, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish). If sauce is too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
