Be adventuresome with a classic Italian pasta sauce made with organic tomatoes, onions, garlic and a touch of vodka and whipping cream.
Updated Sep 30, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped (1/3 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic crushed tomatoes with basil, undrained
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until crisp-tender.
  • 2
    Stir in tomatoes, vodka, sugar, salt and pepper. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in whipping cream. Heat just until hot.
  • 3
    Serve over cooked pasta as desired.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use broth for the vodka. The sauce will just have a much different flavor.
  • tip 2
    Try fettuccine or penne with this sauce; they're both good choices. Top servings with a generous sprinkling of freshly shredded Parmesan cheese.
