Date night is important to any relationship and creating delicious meals at home, together, can be just as fun as going out. This Steak and Blue Cheese Alfredo might sound indulgent, but it includes a secret ingredient: Veggiecraft™ Farms linguine made with cauliflower, making this dish gluten-free and high in fiber and protein! This pasta is layered with flavors that everyone will love.
Key to this meal is the preparation of the steak. You can use sirloin, ribeye or New York strip for the best results and prepare it on the grill or in a cast iron skillet inside. A quick sear to the outside, leaving the inside medium or medium-well will give the best flavor for this dish!
The Alfredo sauce is really easy to prepare by combining butter, heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. Adding in fresh spinach at the end will add an extra dose of vegetables to the meal and you can feel free to swap it out with kale if that is what you have on hand. Keep in mind that it will seem like a lot of spinach at first but will quickly cook down.
Making a reduction of balsamic vinegar is easy to do to drizzle on top of your dish before serving. To prepare the glaze, simply add the balsamic vinegar to a small pot and heat over medium-high heat until the vinegar comes to a boil. Turn the balsamic down to a medium temperature and continue to simmer until the vinegar reduces by half and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
This dish is best served with a size of breadsticks to soak up the extra alfredo sauce in your bowl. And since it’s date-night, don’t forget the glass of red wine!
