This spiked, cream sauce is simple and spectacular. It was designed by Blue Ice Vodka to top your favorite pasta, but it's a great sauce for chicken and rice as well. With the chunkier, creamy sauces like this Tomato Vodka Cream Sauce I like to use the thick, short pastas like bow tie and penne. Pair this dish with a Dry Martini or white wine and finish off with a Lemon Sorbet or go super-sweet with my favorite dessert, Forget Me Not Fudge, and vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 Blue Ice Vodka
  • 1 can Italian crushed tomatoes or fresh equivalent
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup romano cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Preparation:

  1. Melt butter over high heat until bubbly.
  2. Add red pepper flakes.
  3. Rapidly add the vodka and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Simmer tomatoes with the two cheeses for 3 minutes, then add the heavy cream and simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Serve over your favorite pasta.
