Steak and Pasta – Canadian T-bone Steak and Pesto


Finally, where in the main course. For recap for those who just tuned in, This is the main dish of our 7 course meal. And this entree’s will be our 5th meal of the night. Starting from canape, appetizer, soup and salad. We still ave that big appetite. Yes, We are very big now! (LOL). I choose a steak to accompany  my pesto al dente pasta. And my steak is just flat in taste, I just seasoned it with salt and pepper. I love my steak to be like this way. I also like my steak cooked in medium done To complement the steak I paired it with a plain spaghetti al dente with pesto sauce. So, you can just imagine the flavour of herbs and the steak exploding on your mouth every single bite.. how about you? what do you want to pair with your steak?. Please stay with next week as we will continue with the dessert………………Did you know that pesto I used here is made with basil leaves and olive oil. I already featured the basil leaves, so we will go on with the olive oil. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, especially vitamin E, long thought to minimize cancer risk. Among plant oils, olive oil is the highest in monounsaturated fat, which doesn’t oxidize in the body, and it’s low in polyunsaturated fat, the kind that does oxidized. Some recent studies also indicate that regular consumption of olive oil can help decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It has also been demonstrated that a diet that is rich in olive oil, low in saturated fats, moderately rich in carbohydrates and soluble fiber from fruit, vegetables, pulses and grains is the most effective approach for diabetics. It helps lower “bad” low-density lipoproteins while improving blood sugar control and enhances insulin sensitivity. Lastly,  although olive oil is high in calories, olive oil has shown to help reduce levels of obesity.

  1. That pasta looks so good under there! Mmm….I’m so hungry right now my tummy is rumbling!

  2. Since we also live in Beef Country (though quite a bit south of Canada!), I can imagine this will be an easy treat to find ingredients for preparing! And there is *no* place where pasta isn’t welcome . . . 🙂

  3. This site really has all the information I needed concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
