Make weeknight dinner fast and easy. Here's a main course recipe and three suggestions for rounding it out into a complete meal. Find out how to effortlessly dress up starters, sides, and desserts to fit the meal's main course.
This recipe for Steak with Pan Sauce: Balsamic Variation has an Italian flavor, so including Radicchio with Warm Olive Oil Dressing, Pasta with Garlic and Tomato, and Tiramisu makes perfect sense. Look for Tiramisu in the bakery or shop for a frozen variety. Get everything ready before you cook the steak, as it's really fast and you'll want to eat it hot.
Cut radicchio into small pieces. Heat olive oil salad dressing for 20-30 seconds in microwave; toss with radicchio.
Cook pasta -- any variety will do. In a skillet, heat olive oil until hot, add chopped garlic, and cook 30 seconds. Add a jar of drained petite diced tomatoes and cook 3-4 minutes. Toss with pasta.
Serve fresh from the pastry department or buy frozen and thaw according to package directions.
