Instructions

Cook the Pasta
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot, off the heat.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Fry the Beef Strips
2
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the beef strips and season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until browned, shifting as they colour, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat and its packaging. Meat is safe to eat when the outside is browned. 
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan, set aside and cover to keep warm.
Soften the Pepper
3
  • Meanwhile, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Once empty, give the pan a wipe, then return to high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the pepper and fry until softened, 3-4 mins. Continue to stir while it cooks.
  • In the final min of cooking time, add the Cajun spice and fry until fragrant, 1 min.
Make the Sauce
4
  • Stir in the passata, creme fraiche, beef stock powder, red wine jus, ½ tsp sugar and 75ml water (double both for 4p).
  • Simmer for 6-8 mins. 
  • Add a splash of water if the sauce is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Coat the Beef
5
  • Just before serving, stir the beef strips and drained pasta into the sauce.
  • Toss well and season to taste with salt and pepper, if required.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Share the Cajun pasta between plates.
  • Finish by sprinkling over the Italian cheese.
