1  boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
2  Cups fresh sugar snap peas
2  Cups cooked gemelli or corkscrew pasta
1  Cup grape or teardrop tomatoes, cut in halves
3  Cloves garlic, minced
1  tsp. black pepper

2  Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2  cloves garlic, minced

Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add peas; cook 2 to 3 minutes until crisp-tender.

Drain; rinse under cold water.  Combine peas, pasta and tomatoes in large bowl.
Set aside.

Whisk Gremolata Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well blended.

Toss 2 tablespoons dressing with pasta mixture. Set aside.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
