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 – and especially enjoyable if you have the time to make your own italian-style spaghetti.

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

Serves 4 people | Difficulty: Intermediate


  • 500g of spaghetti
  • 200g basil pesto
  • 100g of Parmesan cheese
  • Pepper
  • Fleur de Sel
  • 2 dry aged steaks, 200g each
  • Some olive oil



  1. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator one hour before preparation.
  2. Cook the spaghetti in salted water, drain and keep warm.
  3. Preheat the pan well, adding a little olive oil to the steaks.
  4. Fry in the hot pan for 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Wrap in aluminum foil and leave to soak for 5 minutes.
  6. Season the steaks with salt and pepper.
  7. Fry the spaghetti in the pan.
  8. Add basil pesto and parmesan cheese.
  9. Swing everything hot once.
  10. Spread the pasta on plates.
  11. Cut the dry-aged steaks into fine slices, plating the steak strips on the pasta.
  12. Season with fresh pepper and Fleur de Sel.

Enjoy nice and hot.

Tip: The dish can also be served in a large pan and brought to the table. Align the steak strips in a ring, so that everyone can take his part comfortably.
