Seagram’s Vodka Cream Pasta

Seagram’s Vodka Cream Pasta

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads who make big and small sacrifices for their families each day.  You are appreciated.

‘It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.’ – Pope John XXIII

Here is a great light pasta recipe to make for your dad this week to show how much you appreciate him.  We first found this recipe years ago when Rachel Ray was on the Oprah Winfrey Show.  We have adapted it slightly.  It is an easy, tasty, fresh recipe to make on a weeknight or for dinner with friends.

Several of you have asked if these recipes are safe for children.  Except for the beverages posted on our blog, these recipes are safe for children.  Most of the alcohol cooks out before serving, for the dessert recipes, there isn’t enough alcohol to affect a flea, so you can feel safe serving these recipes to your family members.

The ingredients for the Seagram’s Vodka Cream Pasta are extra-virgin olive oil, butter, garlic, sweet onion, Seagram’s Vodka, chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper, penne pasta, cream, shredded parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.

First you will heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon of butter, 2 minced garlic cloves, and ½ cup of sweet chopped onions.  Gently sauté for 3-5 minutes.  We love this part, the onions, garlic and butter smell so good.

Next add the 1 cup vodka to the skillet.  Reduce by half, which takes about 2-3 minutes.  Add  1 cup chicken stock and 1 32 ounce can crushed tomatoes.  Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat.  Simmer.  Season with salt and pepper.

While sauce is simmering, cook pasta in salted boiling water until cooked to al dente.

Stir ½ cup cream into sauce. When sauce bubbles, remove from heat.  Drain pasta and toss pasta and sauce.  Top with chopped basil leaves and shredded parmesan cheese.

I usually serve the pasta with a light salad, green veggie and crusty bread.  Yummy and easy!
