Picante Steak and Mostaccioli Pasta With Spinach Raspberry Salad

Picante Steak and Mostaccioli Pasta

1/2 cup pre-diced red onion
7–8 sprigs fresh cilantro (rinsed)
1/4 cup canned, sliced jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
two 8-ounce cans crushed pineapple in juice (drained)
8 ounces mostaccioli or penne rigate pasta
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon chili powder, divided
1 pound beef flank steak
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

  1. Preheat grill. Fill large saucepan half full of water. Cover and bring to boil on high for pasta.
  2. Chop cilantro and then jalapeño and red peppers; place all in medium bowl. Stir in onions and pineapple; set aside.
  3. Stir pasta into boiling water. Boil 10–12 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until tender. (Transfer cooked pasta to colander to drain.)
  4. Brush 1 tablespoon of the oil over both sides of the steak; then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the chili powder. Place steak on grill (wash hands); grill 4–5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 145°F (for medium-rare). Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure desired doneness. (Grills vary widely; adjust time as needed.) Remove steaks from grill; let stand 5–10 minutes before slicing.
  5. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 1–2 minutes. Place remaining 1 tablespoon oil in pan; swirl to coat. Add pineapple mixture (set bowl aside), lime juice, salt, pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon chili powder. Cook 4–5 minutes or until onions begin to soften. Transfer pasta to same medium bowl.
  6. Stir pineapple mixture into pasta. Cut steak in 1/8-inch-strips diagonally against the grain; cut strips into bite-size pieces. Stir into pasta and serve.

Aprons Advice

For a vegetarian treat, simply omit the flank steak. The pasta has a sweet, hot flavor that tastes great alone.
