Spice Up Dinnertime

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- (Family Features) Whether it's cooking for the family or company, everyone needs a few new ideas to turn ordinary meals into something special. Thai-Style Curry Beef and Pasta -- chockfull of beef and fresh vegetables in a creamy coconut-curry sauce -- shows how a little creativity can go a long way.

Start with pasta that offers more than just great taste. While Dreamfields pasta is made from durum wheat semolina, which ensures the taste and texture of traditional pasta, it also has the added nutrition of five grams of fiber per one cup cooked serving and fewer digestible carbohydrates. It's a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional pasta that's perfect for the whole family.

While the pasta cooks, prep the top sirloin steak. This boneless, tender cut of beef is economical and works great in this recipe. Slice it thin and toss with garlic for an extra flavor punch. The beef is quickly stir-fried, and then the broccoli, bell peppers and onions hit the skillet.

Kick up the creativity by adding a blend of sweet and spicy flavors -- ginger, chili pepper, coconut milk and red curry paste -- to give this dish an Asian flair. (Tip: red curry paste can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket, or visit an Asian market which is likely to have more brand choices.)

To serve, the colorful, fragrant stir-fry is tossed with perfectly cooked, al dente Dreamfields Spaghetti. In less than 30 minutes you have an Asian-inspired one dish meal that transforms dinnertime from basic to extraordinary.
