A delicious cream and tomato based sauce that uses vodka to bring out the flavors. Note: all of the alcohol cooks out.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium pot on 5/10.
  2. Cut the garlic, onion, and herbs (if using fresh) while the oil heats up.
  3. Saute the garlic, onion, seasonings, and ham/prosciutto until the meat is browned.
  4. Pour in vodka with the browned ham/prosciutto.
  5. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. While sauce is simmering, cook pasta according to package directions until al-dente.
  7. After sauce has simmered for 10 minutes, most of the alcohol smell should have dissipated.
  8. Stir in tomatoes and tomato sauce and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes (or longer if desired, longer allows flavors to mix more).
