Recipe Ingredients for Steak Asparagus Chimichurri Pasta

3 cloves garlic
1 cup Italian or curly parsley (I like Italian), loosely packed
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 lb shitake mushrooms
1 lb. Smart Taste Penne Rigate
1 lb. skirt steak
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. thick asparagus, tough ends removed

Recipe Directions for Steak Asparagus Chimichurri Pasta

  1. Start with the chimichurri sauce: Place garlic, parsley, olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, red pepper flakes and salt in a blender or food processor and pulse until all large pieces of parsley and garlic are gone. If you don?t have a blender, chop the garlic and parsley finely, then whisk with the remaining ingredients. Set aside.

  2. Heat your grill to medium-high and sprinkle the steak with 1 tsp. salt. Once the grill is hot, place the steak, asparagus and mushrooms on it. Turn the asparagus and mushrooms often, ensuring they don't burn. Remove asparagus when tender but still crisp (time depends on how thick your asparagus is, about 5 ? 8 minutes). Cook the steak to your desired done-ness, then remove and let sit for 5 minutes. Slice the steak into bite-sized pieces and cut the asparagus and mushrooms into 1-inch pieces.

  3. While you?re grilling, set a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Once it comes to a boil, salt it thoroughly and add the pasta. Cook until al dente, then drain and return to pot.

  4. Toss the pasta with half the amount of Chimichurri until well coated. Toss in the steak, mushrooms, and asparagus and serve.
