Yummy Steak Pasta

I got the inspiration from my friend Ashley (thanks girl!). I tweaked her recipe a little. This recipe comes together so quickly and is absolutely delicious.

Steak Pasta

1/2 lb. John Soules Beef Fajita Strips (these come frozen from Walmart or Sams)
Wide egg noodles
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped (I used frozen chopped)
1 1/2 teaspoons basil
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 can diced tomatoes
Parmesan cheese

While the egg noodles are boiling, heat olive oil in a pan. Saute the fajita strips and onion. Add the tomatoes, basil and garlic powder. After draining pasta, mix together with the meat mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I was excited to receive her CD in the mail today that I ordered from The CD was released November 23rd and became Amazon's best-selling album in pre-sales. Think about that for a

Try as I might, I cannot listen to "I Dreamed a Dream" (the title song) without tears. There is something about it that touches me deeply.

Inside the CD jacket, there is a quote from Susan: "I would like to dedicate this album to my beloved Mother, to whom I made a promise to be someone."

You are someone alright, Ms. Boyle, and we love you!
