Penne Pasta with Vodka Sauce


Category :


12oz whole wheat penne
1-28oz can whole plum tomatoes
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 shallots minced
1 garlic clove minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup vodka
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 grated parmesan cheese


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cooking water, then drain the pasta. Empty the tomatoes into a bowl and crush with your hands.

2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Remove from heat and stir in the vodka, tomatoes, and salt to taste. Return the skillet to medium heat and simmer, stirring often, until the alcohol cooks off, about 7 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Stir in Parmesan.

3. Add the pasta to the sauce and toss to combine, adding some of the reserved cooking liquid to loosen. Season with salt. Serve topped with more Parmesan.
