|Pasta With Spicy Vodka Sauce|
Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter. Let butter melt and then add onions. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garilc and saute for another minute. Add tomatoes, dried basil, cayenne chile, vodka. Cook until sauce has reduced, about 15 minutes. Add half-and-half and simmer until thickened, about another 5 minutes. Add the parmesan cheese and blend well.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Place some of the sauce on the bottom of a large pasta serving bowl (largest bowl you have). Place cooked pasta on top. Then add more of the sauce. Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.
Serve with warm bread or rolls.
It came out great. Really nice but could've been spicier. DH wouldn't have liked it spicier.
