 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Butter
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 28 oz Can Italian plum tomatoes
  • 1 c Heavy cream
  • 1/4 c Vodka
  • 1/4 ts Dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 lb Penne pasta
  • 1/4 c Parmesan; freshly grated
  • 1 tb Fresh chives; minced


Drain, seed and chop the tomatoes. Melt butter with oil in heavy large
saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, about 5
minutes. Add tomatoes and cook until almost no liquid remains in pan,
stirring frequently, about 25 minutes. Add cream, vodka and red pepper and
boil until thickened to sauce consistency, about 25 minutes. Season to
taste with salt and pepper. (Sauce can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and
refrigerate.) Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just
tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain well. Transfer
to a large bowl. Bring sauce to a simmer. Pour over pasta and toss well.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and chives and serve.
