You wont be single for long Vodka Cream Pasta

I saw this recipe on Oprah and then made it - wow its great - I have made it as a simple cream pasta and now pouch meatballs in it as well.

Ingredients

  • It's Rachael Ray's most romantic dish!

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil , once around the pan in a slow stream

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 cloves garlic , minced

  • 2 shallots , minced

  • 1 cup vodka

  • 1 cup chicken stock

  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (32 ounces)

  • Coarse salt and pepper

  • 16 ounces pasta , such as penne rigate

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 20 leaves fresh basil , shredded or torn

  • Serve with:

  • Crusty bread , for passing

Method

  • 1.

    Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Add oil, butter, garlic and shallots. Gently sauté shallots for 3 to 5 minutes to develop their sweetness. Add vodka to the pan (3 turns around the pan in a steady stream will equal about 1 cup). Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2 or 3 minutes. Add chicken stock, tomatoes. Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

  • 2.

    While sauce simmers, cook pasta in salted boiling water until cooked to al dente (with a bite to it). While pasta cooks, prepare your salad or other side dishes.

  • 3.

    Stir cream into sauce. When sauce returns to a bubble, remove it from heat. Drain pasta. Toss hot pasta with sauce and basil leaves. Pass pasta with crusty bread.

  • 4.
