Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend, Stephen, loves Chicken Alfredo. In fact, the first meal I ever made for him was Chicken Alfredo. He definitely prefers a cream-based sauce over any other sauce for pasta. So the mac and cheese, with another favorite, steak, was a big hit with him.

Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2-3 lbs. round chuck steak
Grill seasoning
1 lb. mini fusilli pasta
6 c. half and half
1 T. Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
2 c. shredded provolone cheese
Over medium heat, caramelize the onion slices in a large skillet. In large sauce pan, simmer half and half over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until it reduces by half. Thinly slice the steak and season with grill seasoning. Cook steak in skillet, and mix in with onions to keep warm. Cook pasta and drain. When half and half has reduced, whisk in mustard and shredded cheese. Add cheese sauce and pasta to the steak and onions. Mix well. * I added some ground red pepper on top.
