    SarasotaCook's Note:

    A simple quick sauce. Serve this as is over your favorite pasta; or add shrimp, chicken, sausage, or your favorite vegetables. Garnish with some fresh grated parmesan for a very simple quick dinner. And if you don't keep a large bottle of vodka on hand, pick up one of those little bottles (I call them, airline or hotel bottles), it is the perfect amount for 1 serving of this sauce. One can of diced Italian style (flavor) tomatoes, but you can also used crushed if you want a creamier type of sauce vs. the diced tomatoes - ten minutes and on the table. I prefer Vermicelli or Angel Hair, but you can use your favorite pasta.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (15 ounce) can diced Italian tomatoes (if you prefer a creamier style of sauce, you can use a crushed tomato vs. canned)
    • 1/3-1/2 cup heavy cream (depending on how creamy you like the sauce)
    • 1/8 cup vodka (a little more or less depending on taste, it doesn't have to be exact)
    • 1 large shallot, fine minced (2 small shallots)
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon fresh basil, fine chopped (more to taste, or as a garnish)
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • salt
    • pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sauce -- In a medium to large sauce pan heat the olive oil to medium high heat and saute the shallots, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook just a minute until slightly tender. Then add the vodka (remember to remove the pan from the heat when you add any alcohol), return to the heat and cook for just a minute. Add the tomatoes, and reduce the heat to medium/low. Cook just for 3-4 for minutes and then add in the heavy cream, basil, salt and pepper to taste.
    2. 2
      Serve -- The sauce is done. You can add shrimp (they can cook in the sauce in just 4-5 minutes). You can also add in cooked chicken or sausage. For me, I like the sauce as is.
    3. 3
      Garnish -- Fresh grated parmesan and crusty bread is perfect to me.
