Original recipe makes 4 servings

  •  8 ounces whole wheat penne pasta
  •  2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  •  1 tablespoon butter
  •  1 (1 pound) beef rib eye steak
  •  1 tablespoon butter
  •  1 teaspoon minced garlic
  •  1/4 cup chopped shallots
  •  1 tablespoon soy sauce
  •  1/2 cup sun-dried tomato pesto
  •  1/2 cup sliced black olives
  •  1 cup chopped fresh spinach
  •  1 teaspoon basil
  •  1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  •  1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  •  3 tablespoons sunflower kernels


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. When cooked, drain, then toss with olive oil, and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the rib-eye on both sides until rosy-pink in the center, 7 to 10 minutes depending on thickness. Remove steak from skillet and cut into bite-size pieces. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the skillet, and stir in the garlic and shallots. Cook 5 to 10 seconds until fragrant, then return the steak to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes or to desired doneness. Stir in the soy sauce, and cook a few seconds longer, allowing it to evaporate.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sun-dried tomato pesto, olives, spinach, basil, parsley, feta cheese and sunflower kernels. Toss with the pasta in a large bowl and serve.
