Spaghetti with basil pesto and dry-aged steak

Spaghetti with basil pesto and dry-aged steak

Spaghetti with basil pesto is a real family dish, which is often served in larger groups. It’s easy to prepare – whoever has time to make his own pesto and prefers to buy good Italian spaghetti rather than mass-produced products. In the meantime, we also have the smaller manufacturers in the delicatessen trade, and spaghetti is characterised above all by the fact that they have to cook a little longer, but are simply “al dente” – with a great consistency.

We combine this dish with deliciously seasoned meat, either grilled or in a hot frying pan. Have fun enjoying.


  1. Cook the spaghetti in salted water.
  2. Drain the spaghetti and keep warm.
  3. Rub the parmesan.
  4. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator one hour before preparation.
  5. Preheat the pan well.
  6. Add a little olive oil to the steaks.
  7. Fry in the hot pan for 2 minutes on each side.

  13. Spread the pasta on plates.
  14. Cut the dry-aged steaks into fine slices.
  15. Put the steak strips on the pasta.
  16. Season with fresh pepper and Fleur de Sel.
  17. Enjoy nice and hot.
