This Philly cheese steak pasta recipe is easy to make in a cast iron skillet. Perfect comfort food for a cold or rainy day.
Recently I found my grandmother’s old cast iron skillet.
It didn’t look great but then I googled how to care for cast iron, and followed this article on how to bring it back to life.
My husband and I had been talking about a restaurant we used to like. They made the most fantastic burgers and skillet meals. I had never tried to make my own skillet meal, so when I got this old cast iron skillet cleaned up, I decided to make a Philly cheese steak pasta.
I has the typical beef, onion, and peppers flavor, with macaroni instead of bread. Also, I used Provolone cheese, instead of the American or processed cheese spread, you might find in a Philly cheese steak sandwich.
You could also add mushrooms for a deluxe version of this dish.
It turned out really good. That kind of stick to your ribs, comfort food meal that everyone loves.
Next, I want to try making a cobbler or cookie pie in this skillet. I’m so glad I found it.
