FOOD, My recipes MY RECIPE BOX: vodka pasta 24 May 2014


No, we are not an alcoholic family.

But, we all gobbled up this Vodka pasta I made! Kids included 😛

It’s essentially a basic tomato-cream sauce, but then doused with a healthy dose of vodka. I heard that this gives pasta sauce a great ‘kick’, and we had half-a-bottle of vodka in our fridge.. so I figured this was a great way of using it up.

I sauteed crushed whole garlic cloves and diced onion in some salted butter, then added in 1.5 cups of vodka. After a few seconds, I popped in a tin of tomato puree and a tub of cooking cream. For seasoning, there was the usual salt/pepper, as well as some dried oregano and parsley, and paprika. For fun, I popped in some steak seasoning too!

The ingredients I used was sliced garlic&herb sausages and sliced mushrooms.

Then I served it on spaghetti, topped with freshly shaved parmesan and fresh basil leaves.


(the kids slept reaaaalllyyyyy well that night!)

    This reminds me of the time where I tried to make tomato gin soup, added a splash too much & couldn’t stop giggling the whole night!

      LOL hilarious!! But I believe the alcohol gets evaporated off during the cooking process.. right….?

        Actually, that’s recently been debunked as a myth. 🙂
