This pasta is a very delicious take on my favorite sandwich, the Philly cheese steak.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute pepper, onion, and garlic for 3 minutes. Add steak and Italian seasoning. Saute until steak begins to firm and is hot and slightly pink in the center, 7 to 10 minutes more. Add remaining olive oil. Drain penne and mix into the skillet.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in flour; continue cooking and stirring until a paste forms, about 2 minutes. Add evaporated milk and garlic, stirring constantly until sauce is homogenous. Add Cheddar cheese and Gouda cheese by handfuls; continue stirring until completely melted, about 5 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and drizzle over the pasta.

Tips

Cook's Note:

Use your favorite type of pasta and steak.

My fiance and I made this together and we loved how it turned out. Gouda is not a traditional for cheese steak (American or provolone would be) but it's my favorite cheese in general so I went with it. The cheese sauce turned out thick and gorgeous. My fiance isn't a fan of peppers but we agreed that mushrooms would make sense as a substitute. Steak is of course always fabulous. Overall things came together really well and we look forward to making it again. Read More

I wanted to like this so much.. but it is such a fail! My only reason for a three star.. was the meat! If you follow the meat portion of this recipe.. it's a great start for fajitas. Read More

I thought this was pretty great. The only thing missing was seasoning. A good hit of salt and pepper or steak seasoning would go a long way. Next time I would also add some mushrooms. Read More

I always try making recipes as they are written. I made this with muenster instead of gouda cause that's what I had and since they are both mild cheeses I thought it was a good substitute. My only issue was that it needed salt and pepper. It's also good the next day which is always a bonus! Read More
