2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup vodka
1 can (32oz) crushed tomatoes
salt & pepper
16 oz pasta (rotini/penne)
1/2 cup heavy cream
20 leaves fresh basil, shredded
Loaf of crusty bread for dipping
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil, butter, garlic & shallots. Saute for 3-5 minutes. Add vodka, reduce by cooking 3-5 more minutes. Then, add chicken stock and tomatoes. Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt & pepper. While sauce simmers, cook pasta according to box directions. Stir cream into sauce. When sauce returns to a bubble, remove from heat. Toss sauce with pasta & basil.
