Penne, Shrimp, Flank Steak, Arugula and Basil

Today is a lazy day and with so many leftovers in the fridge from the party, no hard cooking for me today! I have a whole Flank Steak that wasn't used but it was grilled so i kept it refrigerated and removed from fridge about 1 hour before i tossed the pasta. Had a bag of boiled shrimp and already chopped tomatoes. Cooked some pasta and lunch is ready!!!


1 box of penne pasta cooked to package instructions
1 cup of cooked shrimp and if it's raw it only takes a minute to cook it
1 Flank steak thinly sliced
6-8 cloves of garlic sliced
a big glog of olive oil
Fresh arugula
Fresh chopped basil
1 cup of chopped tomatoes
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 lemon

In a large pan heat the olive oil and garlic until golden. Add shrimp, steak and tomatoes. 

Give it a stir, and when all meat and shrimp is coated with the oil and garlic , add the pasta, arugula and fresh basil. Squeeze a whole lemon and toss it. Season to taste and serve it warm!
