My momma shared this one with me. I have no idea where she found this recipe, but if anyone else knows, feel free to share! This sauce is also great with a little pancetta (or bacon).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter with oil in large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes and cook until almost no liquid remains in pan, stirring frequently about 15-25 minutes. (At this point, start a pot of water for the pasta.).
  3. Add cream, vodka and red pepper and boil until thickened to sauce consistency, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Sauce may be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.).
  4. Pour sauce over 1 lb cooked whole wheat pasta. Toss well, and serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
