Yummy Steak Fettuccine Alfredo and Garlicky Lemon Mahi Mahi are on today's Thursday Food menu board. Enjoy!
Steak Fettuccine Alfredo
6 oz fettuccine pasta
3 tbsp butter, divided
2 8 oz New York strip steaks
Salt and pepper
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
While you cook the steaks, boil pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain and set aside.
Preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium high heat. Add butter.
Generously season steaks with salt and pepper. Add to the hot skillet and cook until caramelised and golden brown, 2-4 minutes.
Flip and cook the other side. Cook steak to your desired doneness.
Remove steaks from skillet, cover with foil and let rest while you prepare the sauce.
Return skillet to medium heat. Add remaining butter, heavy whipping cream, and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until cheese is melted and sauce is slightly thickened, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
Add drained pasta to the sauce and toss to coat.
Slice steaks and serve over pasta. Top with more parmesan cheese, if desired.

To skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add asparagus and cook until tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate.
