This is steak night at the height of chic comfort. Cut from Canada AAA beef, our strip loin serves two savvy diners in style—you’ll fan out those ample juicy slices after a straightforward searing. On the side, there’s gourmet pen ’n’ cheese based on fresh penne mingled with smoked cheddar and mozzarella, and broiled until it bubbles like a beaut.

Roast the beets
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. On a lined sheet pan, toss the beets with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 15 to 18 min., until tender.

Cook the steak
Meanwhile, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the steak* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, 3 to 5 min. per side, until cooked as desired. Transfer to a cutting board. Cover and let rest for at least 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Start the skillet
Meanwhile, small-dice the smoked cheddar. In a medium, oven-safe pan, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Cook the remaining spices, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until a paste forms. Add the milk and cook, whisking constantly, 3 to 5 min., until thickened; season with S&P. Add the mozzarella and ½ the smoked cheddar. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until the cheese is melted and smooth.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 3 to 6 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Finish the skillet
When the beets are tender, remove from the oven and switch the oven to broil. To the pan of sauce, add the pasta and ½ the reserved cooking water; toss well. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency. Top with the remaining smoked cheddar. Broil, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to brown.
