Nonna’s A La Vodka Sauce

NonnasALaVodkaSauce

 

My daughter’s favorite pasta sauce is A La Vodka.  She loves the creaminess of it with the little bits of prosciutto and tomato in every forkful.  What she doesn’t know is that I have taken Nonna’s recipe and made some slight adjustments to make it a smidgen more healthy.

I have shared Nonna’s original recipe, but made notes on how I converted it.  Some very simple alterations to suit our healthy goals.

 

Nonna’s A La Vodka Sauce

Yield: 8 servings

Nonna’s A La Vodka Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 4 cloves of garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp hot pepper flakes
  • 2 shallots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 lb. prosciutto (I used 1/4 lb., but you can omit it all together)
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup fat free half and half or you can use heavy cream or regular half and half
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a large pan. Add garlic and cook until golden brown over medium heat.
  2. Add hot pepper. Cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Add shallots and prosciutto. Cook for about 3 minutes until the onions are translucent and the prosciutto is browned.
  4. Add vodka and simmer until the liquid has reduced by half.
  5. Add tomatoes and cream. Simmer for 15 minutes until heated through and the desired consistency is reached.
  6. Check for salt and pepper. Then serve with pasta (I used gluten free pasta).
