Super simple, super impressive, super delicious. All things a perfect date night meal should be. Cook this up with your usual pantry staples -as long as vodka is one of your staples too ;)
150 grams Donna Pastaia Pappardelle pasta
2 cups tomato puree
1 medium/small onion finely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
25 ml Vodka
Salt and Pepper to taste, and cheese and herbs to serve
- In a saucepan brown garlic and onion in olive oil for 1-2 minutes, and then add tomato puree. Cook until the tomatoes turn a darker colour and just until they start to stick to the bottom.
- Add vodka to the saucepan and simmer on medium heat for a further 2-3 minutes.
- Before adding cream, temper it with 2 tbsp warm water and then add to the tomato sauce. Bring everything together on medium heat, add salt and pepper and set aside.
- Boil water in another pan, add salt to the water (1 tbsp per 1 litre), and once the water is on a rolling boil add the pasta to it. Cook for 6-7 minutes - drain and toss together with the sauce.
Serve and enjoy!
