+ 1/2 c. prepared light Asian vinaigrette

1. Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/4 to 1/8-in. thick strips. Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef and 1/4 c. marinade in medium bowl; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 min. to 2 hrs. Cover and reserve remaining marinade in refrigerator.
2. Cook pasta according to pkg. directions, adding peas and carrots during last 1 to 2 min. and cooking until vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain; place pasta and vegetables in large serving bowl. Set aside.
3. Meanwhile remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1/2 of beef; stir-fry 1 to 3 min. or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Repeat with remaining beef. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
4. Add beef with juices and reserved marinade to pasta and vegetables; toss to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired
