Ingredients

1 boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
2 cups fresh sugar snap peas
2 cups cooked gemelli or corkscrew pasta
1 cup grape or teardrop tomatoes, cut in halves
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
Freshly grated lemon peel
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions

1. Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Add peas; cook 2 to 3 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold water. Combine peas, pasta and tomatoes in large bowl. Set aside.

2. Whisk Gremolata Dressing ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Toss 2 tablespoons dressing with pasta mixture. Set aside.
