Vodka Cream Sauce Recipe

Vodka Cream Sauce Recipe
  • Meal


  • Cusine


2 tablespoon butter

1/4 cup finely minced shallots

3 medium garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1 28-oz can whole tomatoes, crushed by hand

1/3 cup vodka

1/2 cup heavy cream

Kosher salt to taste


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in shallots and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, tomato paste, and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and stir in tomatoes and vodka. Return to heat and simmer until alcohol cooks off, about 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. For a smooth sauce, transfer sauce to a jar of a blender and puree until smooth. Pour back into saucepan. Add in heavy cream and cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Use immediately or store in refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
