Steak & Spinach Alfredo Recipe

Steak & Spinach Alfredo Recipe

Born out of desperation, I had 1/2 pound of thinly sliced steak a bunch of spinach and no idea what to do.  I didn’t feel like making a Chinese stir fry (one of my goto weeknight cooking styles). I decided on pasta, started adding to it, and this was the result. My family loved it.  Probably not the healthiest meal, but it’s home cooked, has veggies in it, and everyone was happy.

Add the beef cook on high heat until browned.
