Penne alla Vodka without vodka
This Penne alla Vodka without vodka, is probably one the easiest, most delicious pasta recipes you can cook. They are made with olive oil, fresh garlic, canned tomatoes, white wine, and heavy cream for the perfect emulsion.
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 whole garlic cloves crushed with the blade of a knife
- 3 cups tomato sauce
- Peperoncino red pepper flakes
- 1 cup white wine
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
- 1 package penne
- Parmesan cheese I used Parmigiano Reggiano
Bring the water for the pasta to a boil. Cook the pasta al dente.
In a medium saucier with a lid, heat the oil and cook the garlic over medium heat until golden brown on both sides, about 4-5 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce and cook covered for 3 minutes.
Add the wine and cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
Remove from the heat, remove the garlic (you can spread it on rustic bread) and add the heavy cream and reserve.
Add the cooked pasta into the sauce and stir. Grate as much Parmesan cheese as you want. Stir and serve immediately with a pinch of pepperoncino, parsley and more cheese.
