Rich and creamy tomato vodka sauce is delicious and is so easy to prepare. Pasta with Vodka Sauce is a simple yet impressive dinner that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Mmmm pasta. Is there a better, more comforting meal than a giant bowl of pasta? I really don’t think so. And one of my favorite toppings for pasta is a delicious vodka sauce. It is so rich and creamy and flavorful, and is surprisingly easy to prepare. In just about 20 minutes, you can have pasta with homemade vodka sauce on the table. What a great option for an impressive weeknight meal.
I am currently writing this post from an Amtrak train. TheBetterHalf and I are on our way to DC for our friend’s wedding. I love taking the train in the fall – the colors of the leaves are just stunning and it is very peaceful watching them go by. What was not peaceful this morning was my experience of getting on the train. I of course needed to have Starbucks before the train ride, so TheBetterHalf got on the train to save us seats while I got my caffeine fix. I somehow ended up entering the train platform from the wrong staircase and had to run down an up escalator. With two bags, and a cappuccino. It was not a pretty sight, but I made it in one piece!
Anyway, back to pasta! I love tomato sauces for pasta – I can’t resist a good marinara. Every once in awhile I love to splurge and add a little vodka and cream to my tomato sauce. A good vodka sauce is just so delicious! This sauce recipe is from Cook’s Illustrated, my favorite source for amazing recipes.
Make sure to take your pan off the heat when you add the vodka – you don’t want a fire show with your dinner. You can use any noodle you want for this pasta – I chose mezze rigatoni, but penne would be a great choice as well. This pasta with vodka sauce is the perfect comforting fall dinner, and is so simple to prepare!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
