Vodka Cream Sauce

A simple recipe that produces a powerful yet subtle sauce. Vodka Cream Sauce is ideal for coating dishes such as pasta. Do not get the wrong impression, this dish only contains a few tablespoons of Vodka but you could add more. I usually make this sauce to go with plain pasta and its makes a seriously good main dish. It is called not surprisingly Rigatoni in Vodka Cream Sauce – Rigatoni alla Bettola. However, I have made this and served it with beef for a lovely alternative. Also with pork served on a bed of piping hot rice. These all make lovely main dishes that are filling, fragrant and simple with a sauce that takes less than 20 minutes.
