50 Pastas - Vodka Sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (28 oz) can whole tomatoes (crushed by hand)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ cup Vodka
  • Red Pepper flakes
  • ½ cup chopped basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil
  1. Cook the garlic slices in some olive oil over medium heat until golden brown. Sprinkle the garlic with red pepper flakes to taste. Add in the vodka and allow to simmer with garlic for about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, water and cream and allow the mixture to come to a simmer. If using dried basil, stir in now and allow the sauce to simmer for 15 minutes. If using fresh basil, stir in after the sauce has simmered for 15 minutes. Toss in some cooked penne or spaghetti and garnish with Parmesan cheese. Indulge!
