Cavatappi with spinach-ricotta pesto
Nb persons: 0
|4 ounce||whole-wheat cavatappi pasta, (rotini or fusilli)|
|1/2 Cup||fresh parsley leaves|
|2 Cups||fresh spinach|
|1/4 Cup||part-skim milk ricotta cheese|
|1 Tbsp||vegetable broth|
|4 ounce||filet mignon|
1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
2. In a food processor, combine garlic, parsley and spinach and grind into a paste. Add ricotta and broth and process to make a smooth puree. In a large bowl, toss pesto with pasta.
3. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat. When hot, add filet. Sear for about 2 min per side, depending on thickness and level of doneness. When well browned and cooked, remove steak to a cutting board. Let stand for at least 3 min to allow meat to reabsorb juices. Slice thinly across grain. Serve pasta topped with steak.
