What Is Prime Rib?
Prime rib is a traditional roast beef preparation made from the beef rib primal cut, usually roasted with the bone in and served with a simple pan sauce made from its natural juices (known as au jus).
The word prime is a legal designation that refers to the fact that the beef has been graded prime by the USDA. If the meat is not labeled as “prime” then it is simply a standing rib roast, or, if it is boneless, it is a rib-eye roast.
The primary characteristic when assigned quality beef grades is the amount of fat within the edible sections of the meat as well as the age of the cow; these criteria mean that prime rib will be tender, moist, and flavorful. The intramuscular fat, or marbling, is a source of flavour and moisture. Therefore the more marbling found, the higher the grade the meat will receive.
Best Pasta For Prime Rib
We love this Prime Rib Pasta recipe as it’s a quick, easy and tasty way to use up leftover roast beef.
We’ve used penne pasta in this recipe as the creamy sauce is chunky so the tube inside the pasta holds the liquid nicely.
Travel to Italy by Cooking Prime Rib Pasta at Home
I love traveling to Europe!
During my first visit to the continent I traveled for 5 months by train and plane. I had the opportunity to eat my way through Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland,Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Czech, Germany, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia, Hungary, Slovakia, Greece, Turkey and Italy.
What I love most about traveling to Italy is the opportunity to sample unique dishes in each region and city. The dishes in Tuscany (Florence, Pisa, Volterra, Saturnia, Pitigliano, Sorano, Montalcino, Siena) are unique from what you’d find in Venice, Modena, Milan, Rome, and Amalfi Coast.
Once back home from a European holiday you’ll have a newfound appreciation for the flavours of Italy and can impress friends and family by making our homemade Prime Rib Pasta recipe.
Where To Eat Prime Rib Pasta
Haven’t traveled to Italy before? It may be helpful to first sample Prime Rib Pasta at a local Italian restaurant to better understand how the dish is served. You’ll get an idea on the ideal pasta shape to use and best sauce to noodle ratio before trying to make the dish at home from scratch.
In Toronto, popular Italian restaurants in Yorkville, King West and Ossington that may serve Prime Rib Pasta include Bar Vendetta, Buca, Superpoint, Amano, Fabbrica, Oretta, FIGO, Nodo, Locale Mercatto, The Good Son, Taverna Mercatto, Ascari Enoteca, Il Fornello or Gusto 101.
My Family Loves Leftover Prime Rib Pasta

Recipe Health Benefits
Our Prime Rib Pasta recipe is packed full of wholesome ingredients!
Onions are a humble vegetable packed with vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Regular consumption of onions can help boost digestive health and reduce the risk of developing heart disease.
It is only recently that scientists have begun to identify the components responsible for garlic’s myriad health benefits. Rich in phytochemicals and potassium, garlic helps boost your immune system, fight cancer and protect your heart.
Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins: riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. The combination helps protect heart health.
Consuming dairy products (such as milk and cheese) provides health benefits — especially improved bone health. Dairy foods provide nutrients that are vital for health and maintenance of your body. These nutrients include calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and protein.
Beef is a great source of protein and minerals like iron as well as an excellent source of the amino acid L-carnitine. Beef also features antioxidant glutathione known for its anti-aging benefits.
Wheat flour is rich in vitamins B-1, B-3, and B-5, along with riboflavin and folate. It also has more iron, calcium, protein, and other nutrients than white flour.
An excellent source of vitamin K, as well as vitamin C, folate, and iron, parsley helps keep your bones and blood healthy, and protects your skin from damage by free radicals.
