  • 1½ lb boneless beef sirloin steak
  • 3 cups 2-inch pieces asparagus (1 lb)
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 1½ cups beef broth (from 32-oz carton)

How to Make It
  1. Trim fat from beef. Cut beef with grain into 2-inch strips; cut strips across grain into ⅛-inch slices. (For easier cutting, partially freeze beef about 1 hour.)
  2. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add asparagus, onions and 1 cup of the broth. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated; remove mixture from skillet.
  3. Add beef to skillet; cook about 2 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently, until beef is no longer pink.
  4. Return asparagus mixture to skillet. Stir in pasta, remaining broth and remaining ingredients except cheese. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot. Sprinkle with cheese.
