Stuck for ideas for dinner? Impress the family with the One Pot Beef Fajita Pasta
Gotta love one pot dishes, right? Delicious meals do not need to use lots of pots and pans. I love cooking, but I hate the cleaning up afterwards, so that's were dishes like this one are perfect.
I've been meaning to make my yummy Chicken Fajita Pasta again, as it has been a long time since I made it, but then realized I hadn't take the chicken out of the freezer. I did have some beef strips that needed to be used, so you know me, I decided on a new take on the recipe, with a One Pot Beef Fajita Pasta.
This is everything you love about fajitas, lovely sweet peppers and onions, with strips of beef and a yummy spicy seasoning. Instead of serving with warmed tortillas. This dish is mixed with a pasta and a lovely silky sauce. Actually the sauce is pretty amazing.
You can also vary this up by swapping the beef for pork or chicken.
It does have a slight kick from the cayenne pepper, but the kids loved it. They will tolerate a little heat, so long as it isn't too spicy. I also add as little bit of Sukrin Gold ( a natural brown sugar sweetener with no aftertaste). It add's a little bit of sweetness to the heat of the cayenne which is perfect.
To keep this fat free, I use a little bit of quark along with the cheddar from allowance for that creaminess, but if you really do not like quark, you can substitute with a little cream cheese.
I then served with some chopped cilantro (coriander) and additional grated cheddar for sprinkling on top. You can also add a mixed salad for some additional speed foods.
