I jokingly call this "man-catcher pasta," since all of the men in my life LOVE this dish, but it is really a misnomer because so do all the women! The steak is so simple yet so tasty- sometimes I'll even make the steak on its own! This is my go-to dish when I want something quick yet satisfying.

Quick, easy, and delicious. I added a bit of chicken bouillon and onions as well. Topped with yogurt (no extra water added), red pepper flakes, and a dash of garam masala powder. Will certainly make this a few times a month!"
