Long Weekend Celebration

In honor of the long weekend and due to the snowstorm that kept us inside most of the day, I made grilled beef and pasta with grilled artichokes and peppers.

I marinated the beef most of the day in a combination of wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, garlic, chili pepper, salt and pepper. Since we have 6+ inches of snow on the ground, the beef was grilled indoors using our counter-top grill (a wedding gift from one of my blog readers -- THANK YOU again!).

Along with the beef, I also grilled artichoke hearts and red peppers. These were tossed with extra virgin olive oil, sauteed garlic, finely chopped anchovies, salt, pepper and multi-grain spaghetti. The dish was finished with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Molto bene!!
