Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups thinly sliced cooked steak
  • 12 ounces uncooked penne pasta
  • 1 (4-ounce) block mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Toppings: chopped fresh basil, freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation

  1. Sauté garlic in hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 1 minute or until lightly browned. Carefully stir in wine and next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Stir in steak. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Stir together hot pasta, mozzarella cheese, and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese in a large serving bowl, tossing to coat until cheeses start to melt. Pour tomato sauce over pasta mixture, and toss to combine. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
Note:

Opening a bottle of wine for a small amount may seem wasteful unless you plan to serve the rest with dinner.  Opt to buy the small bottles, usually sold in four-packs in the wine section of the supermarket.  Use a Chianti or Merlot for red wine and Pinot Grigio for white in the White Winer-Tomato-and-Clam Pasta variation.
