How To Make Penne Pasta with Vodka Sauce
Tender pasta dish topped with rich and savory vodka sauce that brings a tangy and smooth feel brought by the liquor and the herbs and cheese bring balance.
Bring a pot of water to a boil to cook pasta. Season water with salt.
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and prosciutto saute 4 – 5 minutes, add garlic and red pepper flakes and saute 1 minute longer.
Remove pan from heat and add tomatoes, vodka, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Return to medium-high heat, bring to a simmer then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until strong alcohol scent has cooked off, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Reserve ½ cup of pasta water and drain pasta.
Stir cream into sauce and let just heat through, about 1 minute. Stir in parmesan, basil and oregano.
Add drained pasta to pot with sauce, toss to coat, while thinning sauce with a little pasta water as needed.
