Spaghetti with creamed spinach and steak

Spaghetti with creamed spinach and eye fillet steak

I carb loaded today, so I figured why not have some more with some spaghetti.

I have great workmates. One friend made croissants yesterday (she’s a butter fiend), and she gave me one fresh out of the oven this morning. Another friend made coconut ice which is one of my all-time favourite confectionaries.

Yes, I’m spoilt.

Spaghetti, creamed spinach, and eye fillet steak

For the first time in many years rather than buying Asian pasta, I bought some European pasta.

A simple meal tonight. I need to finish the leftover steak from last week. I also have some spinach left to finish too.

It’s an easy enough meal.

I boiled some water and cooked the spaghetti. After rinsing and draining the spaghetti I out it into a frying pan with some olive oil and butter and tossed it around a bit before adding in the spinach leaves to wilt. Add to the frying pan a dash of cream and a teaspoon of mustard for flavour and Bob’s your uncle. All I needed to do was toss through the thinly sliced steak, and dinner was ready.
