Pasta with Vodka Sauce

Ok. So really this is the recipe for the Vodka Sauce. YOu can serve it over regular pasta. It is phenomenal! I think we will be making this again this week as soon as I get some more sausage.

OR you can serve it over Spaghetti Squash. Just place the whole squash in the oven and bake for about an hour. Cut squash open, scoop out seed part (throw away). Then scoop out squash part to eat.

Vodka Sauce (with our without sausage)

Olive Oil
3 sausages (brats, Italian sausage or even chicken sausage)
2 cups crushed tomatoes
5-6 cloves garlic
onion flakes (or small onion)
½ cup vodka
1 cup cream
½ tsp red pepper flakes

Cook the sausage in a little oil until browned and not longer pink. Add garlic and onion sautéed for about 1 minute. Add crushed tomatoes for about 2 mins. Then add vodka. Cook for about 3 minutes until reduced. Add the cup of cream and cook additional 3-5 minutes until thick.

For spicier use Italian sausage.

Makes 4 small servings. For my family I will double the recipe next time.

As usual Dominic ate all the sausage and left the squash. Gioia ate all the squash with sauce and left the sausage. Then Dominic ate her sausage.
