Vodka-Infused Pappardelle's Creamy Delight

Vodka-Infused Pappardelle's Creamy Delight

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!
