Steak & Pasta

What you need:

2 cups uncooked penne 
1/4 pound fresh green beans, trimmed 
1 (3/4-pound) boneless sirloin steak, trimmed 
1 tablespoon garlic-pepper blend 
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red onion 
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper 
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil 
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard 
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil 
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon black pepper 

What to do:

Sprinkle steak with the garlic-pepper blend. Grill steak until desired degree of doneness. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Bring 3 quarts water to a boil in a large pot (6 qt). Add pasta; cook 5 minutes. Add beans, and cook 3 minutes or until pasta is done. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain well.

Combine onion and next 8 ingredients (onion through black pepper) in a large bowl. Add pasta mixture and beef slices; toss well to coat.
