Pasta dish with beef and tomato in a sauce based on cream

As you all probably know by now, we love pasta dishes! They are often quite easy and fast to make, but you can make so many different versions. This recipe is made with a delicious steak which is something you don’t see too often in pasta recipes. The flank steak is an overseen cut of beef that actually tastes delicious and is easy to cook with. If you don’t like flank steak you can easily swap it out with other types of meat after your own preference. One great thing about this recipe is that because it is so simple, it’s also very easy to experiment with as there aren’t any elements that just won’t work with most ingredients. On the contrast, a sauce made on cream and tomato actually works very well with a ton of different ingredients. Top off with fresh parsley as it adds a perfect freshness to the dish.
